What music by Mozart should I be familiar with?

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791)

Mozart's music has been called "absolute musicality" because it is difficult to find evidence of Mozart's personal life or attitudes in his music. Instead, his music reflects the Classical ideals of symmetry and balance. When listening to the symphonies of Mozart, start with No. 41 in C, the Jupiter. Then you can go on to listen to a wealth of chamber music, concertos and sonatas (both piano solo and instrumental with piano accompaniment). If you love opera, choose from The Marriage of Figaro, Don Giovanni, or The Magic Flute for starters.
