Don’t forget that the church was literally so impressed they gave him a medal instead of imprisoning him or executing him

Mozart only needed to hear a piece once to play it better than the original. And on top of that, they believed all his music to have been created by someone else, not this kid, so they locked him in a tower for a period of time (forget how long) with only music paper. When they came back all the paper was filled and he had written on the walls as well. AND ALL THE MUSIC WAS PHENOMENAL. how much more perfect can you get than Mozart? If you want to know more: watch the movie Amadeus. It’s historically accurate but also funny at times. Watch. it.

so he was the first to illegally download a song

And for those of you that would like to hear the first illegally downloaded song that the Vatican kept a secret for so long because it was “too beautiful for human knowledge” You can find it here.

Ok no, Lisztomania was so much better than that
Meet Franz Liszt. 
Liszt was a German composer and pianist in the 1800s, and he was very popular. Like. VERY popular. You know Beatlemania? And today’s Directioners?
Yeah, Lisztomania was basically the precursor to that. It was a term coined by Heinrich Heine, to describe what was basically hysteria that was created by people who heard Liszt perform. And back in the 1840s, ‘mania’ was a much stronger term— people literally fainted, and some critics were worried about contagion and suggested an immunization. This guy was that good.
