Many theories exist today about whether Mozart’s elevated learning abilities stemmed from his father Leopold pushing him so much, or whether Mozart did have this incredible talent that is very hard to encounter in one’s lifetime.
Very similar situations in terms of the relationship between parents and childre, exist today. All parents want the best for their children, no matter what, but sometimes they push to get the best and that can be too much for the child to handle. As a parent, there may be no limit for success, but for a child there are limits.
Perhaps Leopold wanted to show off Mozart to everyone. But no one will ever know what his father wanted his son to turn out to be. One thing that is certain is that Mozart was incredibly talented, and it wasn’t until years later after his death that people realized the full extent of his greatness.
