When famed Austrian composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart died in 1791, he left his beloved 29-year-old wife, Constanze—herself a musician—with two young children and an uncertain financial outlook. Constanze went to work. She arranged for a pension from the emperor, organized memorial concerts, and collaborated on a biography of her late husband.

I am amazed that more attention has not been given to Madame Mozart, for her devotion and her savvy in a very devious and cutthroat social provenance, if that would be the correct term. Wolfgang was a rascal and reckless in his professional and personal dealings. Genius seems to have the gift of nonchalance. This should inspire people to explore for more info on Madame Mozart. Thank you Farlex, I love this site... you're my favorite bunch of nerds...lol happy new year to you and peace!
