Wunderkind Little Amadeus

Magic In Salzburg

Season 1, Episode 23 of 26

A great magician impresses Amadeus by making a poodle play the piano. Amadeus wonders if Pumperl is up to the task. Devilius figures out the trick and makes the poodle disappear. The magician asks for Amadeus' help when his second partner, a piano-playing dwarf, also disappears. With the aid of the young prodigy, the musician's performance at the Bishop's palace is a success - and Pumperl gives a piano concert after all! The Music: "Piano Concerto No. 27 in B Major" K. 595; "Piano Sonata in C Minor" K. 459; et al. Additional Content: Monti reveals that no schools existed in the 18th century. Amadeus and his sister Nannerl were lucky to have their father Leopold, who taught them reading, writing, math and the natural sciences.
