About

In 1764, Joseph II ascended to the throne to become King of the Romans (King in Germany) and a year later he became the emperor of the Roman Empire. With his enlightenment policy – ‘Josephinism’ - Joseph II implemented extensive cultural reforms on account of which the cultural city of Vienna flourished anew. As an avid music lover, the monarch was especially fascinated by piano concerts of an aspiring artist: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Bestowing contracts upon Mozart for years, Joseph II opened the way for him to become one of the greatest composers in music history – and thus Joseph II entered history, not only as the ‘Reform Emperor’, but also as one of the most important promoters and patrons of Mozart.
