Father of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
At 29 years old he became the court composer for the Prince Archbishop of Salzburg, where he had previously served as a violinist.
Without a doubt, when he became aware of his son's great talent, he left his creative work to concentrate on his facet as a professor, for which he was widely recognized (he is the author of A Treatise on the Fundamental Principles of Violin Playing, a comprehensive treatise on violin playing, which was translated into various languages).
In 1762, Wolfgang was 6 years old and was already playing violin and keyboard instruments at an advanced level. Leopold dedicated himself to accompanying his son on tours of the courts of Europe.
