What do you know about Mozart other than that he was a brilliant artist and quite the party animal?

Here is some wicked trivia for you:

BBC shows you a picture of his widow. Check it out. Don't be frightened.

And because it would have been Wolfgang's 250th birthday, the Austrians worked like mad on their online compilation to offer you all of his works online and for free.

What a project!
