Piano Music - Leopold Mozart

Leopold Mozart


1719 (Augsburg) - 1787 (Salzburg)
Leopold Mozart was a German composer, conductor, music teacher, and violinist.


📖 "Before beginning to play, the piece must be well looked at and considered. The character, tempo and kind of movement demanded by the piece must be sought out… Finally, in practising every care must be taken to find and render the affect which the composer wished to have brought out; and as sadness often alternates with joy, each must be carefully depicted according to its kind. In a word, all must be so played that the player himself be moved thereby."
Leopold Mozart Treatise on The Fundamental Principles of Violin Playing (1756)
