Wall Street Journal talks about genius today: At three years old in 1759, the Austrian composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was picking out notes on the harpsichord. He learned his first piece of music 30 minutes after examining it at age 4 and was composing works and performing for royalty across Europe by 7. Celebrate genius with a great wine! Zwei.

Brief bio from wiki: Mozart showed prodigious ability from his earliest childhood. Already competent on keyboard and violin, he composed from the age of five and performed before European royalty. At 17, he was engaged as a court musician in Salzburg, but grew restless and travelled in search of a better position, always composing abundantly. While visiting Vienna in 1781, he was dismissed from his Salzburg position. He chose to stay in the capital, where he achieved fame but little financial security. During his final years in Vienna, he composed many of his best-known symphonies, concertos, and operas, and portions of the Requiem, which was largely unfinished at the time of his death. The circumstances of his early death have been much mythologized. He was survived by his wife Constanze and two sons.
