London – Mozart

The Penguin Little Black Classic No 51, is titled “My Dearest Father” and is a selection of correspondence between Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and his father. The Mozart family travelled extensively in Europe, and in 1764 spent a period in London and lived for a time in Ebury Street. It was there, when he was only eight years old, that the young Mozart is believed to have composed his first two symphonies.

In 1991 to mark the bicentenary of Mozart’s death, a statue of the young musician and composer was commissioned for Orange Square near where he lived in Ebury Street.
