This paid dividends. In Linz, under the sponsorship of a senior member of the aristocracy, Wolfgang and Nannerl gave their first public concert. Several visiting Viennese noblemen were in the audience, including one, Count Pálffy, who had the ear of Archduke Joseph, son of Empress Maria Theresa no less (and later co-ruler with her, before becoming emperor in his own right). Count Pálffy, a delighted Leopold reported, ‘listened with astonishment’ to the two children, and on his return to Vienna duly spoke ‘with great excitement’ to his friend the archduke, who in turn – just as Leopold had hoped – passed it on to his mother, the empress.
Leopold had, as he wrote later in the same letter, and with a rare touch of humour, ‘joined the Order of Patched Trousers’. He had reason to celebrate his marriage. His wife was, by all accounts, docile and obedient which, given Leopold’s natural proclivity for decision-making and brooking no disagreement, made for a contented union. Leopold and his wife Anna Maria were soon considered the handsomest couple in Salzburg. Their portraits, painted when they were in middle age, show fine sensitive faces.
Mozart was giving us the benefits of a gift with which he was imbued. He knew it. He did not know where it came from, or why he alone possessed it, but he knew it and he continued to use it. We owe him a limitless debt of gratitude, as will our children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and every generation that follows them. Everything Mozart created exists for us to enjoy. It was a brief life, but we should be eternally grateful that he lived at all. On 5 September 1842, a year behind schedule – something of an embarrassment – a monument to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was unveiled in the centre of the city of his birth, Salzburg.
