Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
A child prodigy turned into a tragic, romantic figure whose fecundity belies his short life. At 36, Mozart was dead, but in the last two decades of his life he created over 400 works, many of which are still played today with love and admiration. Mozart's early works were derivative of Haydn, but the young composer's genius soon found full flower in his piano concertos, symphonies and operas. While prog bands have generally shied away from interpreting Mozart's works, it is I suspect more a testament to their native perfection and technical complexity than a lack of awareness or appreciation.
