You've justified his father's treatment of him, have you?
Feel free to subject your children to your whims. It was not a child Mozart that was easily manipulated that they were talking of, they were speaking
of adult Mozart.
He was described as 'bordering on automaton', just as Jon Benet Ramsey was described, best known for her 'ability' to retain a single pose for an
unusual amount of time, especially a child.
The Magic Flute has been called 'near plagiarism', I'll let you guess what it is similar to. (benificent dervish)
You are so pathetic for denying his ancestors were Master Masons, so petty.
"The paternal ancestry of the family has been traced back with some degree of certainty to Ändris Motzhart, who lived in the Augsburg area in 1486;
the name is first recorded, for a Heinrich Motzhart in Fischach, in 1331, and appears in other villages south-west of Augsburg, notably Heimberg, from
the 14th century. The surname was spelt in a variety of forms, including Mozarth, Mozhard and Mozer. Several early members of the family were master
masons (i.e. architects), builders, craftsmen and sculptors;"
His father exploited him, and you are unwilling to draw the line for what is unacceptable. I find this most revealing. His father DID double his
money, while his daughter was a child performer she would tour along with him and young Mozart, esp. when Mozart was just getting started.
You make it sound like good health was uncommon in 1790! It wasn't! He wasn't a healthy individual, don't blame it on the society, as you have let
his father off 'easy'.
He wasn't mentally healthy, he wasn't physically healthy, and you don't think his childhood had anything to do with it. If people were willing to
understand his childhood, they would see how comical yet tragic his life was.
Still no grounds for evidence that his life wasn't his own, as it is made out to be?
