Mozart’s First Premier Composition Was Written at the Age of Five

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart composed his first musical piece when he was five years old. It came through as a delicate and harmonious Minuet and Trio in G major…and most people can scarcely believe that it was done by a child genius. Knowing that Mozart is a prodigy, his first Trio, and Minuet in G major is KV1 and was composed when he was just Five.

Oh, you may think it’s got to be a rudimentary, but you’re wrong; it’s provocatively excellent, maniacally sound, with a strong melody and charming harmonies. It was obvious that his genius was evident even at that early an age where most children are still finding out what their favorite toy was.

Bear witness for yourself to see a work composed by a child whose age belies the excellence of the performance.
