Biography  TV-PG

Composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart came from a musically gifted family: his father Leopold was a court violinist and music teacher in Salzburg; his mother was a gifted keyboardist; and his sister was a talented harpsichord player. Realizing that his children’s prodigious talents could potentially earn the family a great deal of money, Leopold brought his family to London in 1764. The city was the ultimate destination for 18th century musicians, as it was home to a new class of wealthy merchants eager to support the arts. However, life in Britain was difficult – royal performances were demanding yet poorly paid endeavors, and the people of London were less than welcoming. Despite the obstacles, Mozart’s time in London would prove to be fruitful – it was the place where the 8-year-old musician composed his first symphony. Hosted by historian and author Lucy Worsley (Henry VIII’s Six Wives), the documentary MOZART IN LONDON traces this pivotal period in the young composer’s exceptional career.
