Did Mozart die of Strep throat?

While listing to a piece by Mozart on a Classical Music Station on the radio while surfing the net, I came across this interesting article about how / why Mozart died. Talk about serendipity.

Anyway, having always been interested in knowing the age and the cause of death of an individual, I clicked through to read the article.

Who knows if this was the real cause or not, but it sounds plausible. Even more tragic, however, (especially to the music world), is that he was only 35 when he died!

So, just in case you are interested, HERE’S THE LINK

And, I found an even better article in that it has even more details. So if you want to know even more, and you really should read both articles, then HERE’S ANOTHER LINK
