1. True. The father even made his son two years younger to make a better impression.

2. Album Leaf?

3. Yes.

4. I think that was the Count Waldstein?

5. Violin?

6. This one I don't know.

7. Salieri?

8. 30?

9. Heiligenstädter Testament

10. If I'm not mistaken, that was Giulietta Guiccardi to whom the Moonlight sonata is dedicated.

3. Did Mozart and Beethoven meet.

CThere is a story, that shortly before Mozart died he met Beethoven for a music lesson and said 'I have nothing to teach this boy' and 'One day he will make a great sound in the world' and such like, but I read that recent speculation believes this to be a fabrication, and in fact that they never did meet.

In the most recent scholarly bio of Beethoven, Lewis Lockford's "The Music and Life of Beethoven (2003), the author states that the famous meeting between B. and Mozart is in any case, not corroborated. He however points that it is possible that the young B. did hear Mozart play while in Vienna in 1787. Years later Carl Czerny noted that while he was a student of Beethoven , B. told him that Mozart "played fine but choppy- no legato."
