Mozart is emblematic of classical music, plain and simple. From his days as a child prodigy touring the court circuit in Europe on, he was known as one of the great luminaries in his day and beyond. He was tutored in his craft by Johann Christian Bach (son of Johann Sebastian), honing his considerable talent in composition. From one great mind came a great many operas, concertos, masses, symphonies, and other works, many of which are the backbone of classical canon today.

From Don Giovanni.

Mozart’s music continues to be a cultural force today even beyond classical music halls.
