The Virtuoso is an enigma for the common man and for most of the enthusiasts. The fact that he is considered as a minor artist in the musical society of Mozart is due to the fact that he wrote symphonies that have been immensely popular and were highly appreciated by the listeners. He had a profound influence on the younger generation and opened many doors for musical creativity in the West. To know more about the importance of this extraordinary artist, we would do well to go through his life as depicted in the movie "The Professional".
The main character in the movie The Professional is a young, virile male. The character possesses a strong sense of commitment and obligation, which is typical of most young men of that era. However, this sense of duty and commitment was not enough to save him from the wrong side of a relationship when the lady of his life fell in love with another man. The Virtuoso could have let go of his responsibility and gone with the flow but he didn't. Instead, he showed a bold and strong sense of commitment which cost him dearly.
The music industry of Mozart is characterized by the great musicians' passion for music. This passion, along with their strong sense of musicality and their drive to perform until the very end, is what marks them out as true virtuosos in the industry. But even with these traits they were unable to live up to the standards that were set by the standards of their times. They failed to live up to the standard of performance that is expected of a virtuoso in the early renaissance. Even after several years, the standard of performers that are believed to be virtuos in Mozart's day has now changed and newer players have been added to the fold.
The definition of virtuosity was introduced long before the inception of the symphony and other forms of music. It was first introduced in operas when a performer who excelled at that skill was named a virtuoso. A musician or a conductor who demonstrated a level of virtuosity during a performance of an opera was called a "lius."
Although there has been a lot of speculation about what constitutes a virtuoso, the term has become a popular one over the last two decades. Most performers of the classical age have been considered to be a virtuoso, but those who were able to break new ground and create new genres in the late nineteenth century were also considered to be virtuosos. Some other performers over the last two decades have been lumped into this category of musician. Janis Martin, John Williams and Yusef Islam are all considered to be technical artists. And yet they were able to do what other technical artists cannot create music that touched the hearts of their audience.
The definition of a virtuoso is one who exhibits the technical ability needed to perform in an art form. However, some musical artists who possess a technical ability that most others could not imagine doing have also achieved a level of artistic genius. Some of the most notable musicians of all time had an extraordinary talent for music and achieved great fame. Some of them achieved this level of fame and achievement without having to posses a formal degree.
