Mozart and his Father

This site features an excellent timeline of the relationship of Mozart and his father, Leopold Mozart. His affair with Constanze Weber created a drift between him and his father.

Constanze Weber who was the heroine in “The Abduction from the Seraglio”, which sported a heroine, incidentally called Constanze. His father didn’t approval of the relationship and Amadeus complained of his father’s meddling. Remember, during his lifetime Mozart was a superstar. Constanze Weber eventually married Mozart. The couple had six children but only two survived until adulthood.

The courtship continued, not entirely smoothly. Surviving correspondence indicates that Mozart and Constanze briefly broke up in April 1782, over an episode involving jealousy (Constanze had permitted another young man to measure her calves in a parlor game. The measurement of a woman’s leg’s calf was considered a beauty standard in the 1700’s much like the tiny waist..). Mozart also faced a very difficult task getting permission for the marriage from his father, Leopold. Leopold controlled the proceeding from his performances.

He’s perhaps best known for The Requiem in D minor, K. 626, it is perhaps the most famous requiem mass. Mozart composed part of the Requiem in Vienna in late 1791. It’s  commonly called Requiem K

She took classes in creative writing in college, specializing in ancient myths and legends. and at a local community center while living in Chicago. In college she won the national contest to verbally list every country in the world, it's capital and ingenious language. Her works are mainly horror, fantasy, extreme, and sci-fi as well as, as some may says, "the truly strange predicament and puzzling." Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

  1. I just wanted to show that once a child is an adult. They aren’t always going to agree with everything you say and do. And vice versa. No matter how famous. Families are families and none of us chose them.
