Ive been really curious lately about Mozart's sleep schedule. Ive been sleeping like a normie for the last 2 years, not staying up late. But I have been practicing into the evening lately, and find myself making much more progress on the Mozart I am working on. I just imagine him working under candle light, and somehow find a kindredness to his spirit.

I haven't done any deep dives into biographies... but I googled it and it said he typically composed/worked until around 1am, and woke up at 5! am. Reminded me of the sort of Elon Musk types who are hyper driven and sleep deprived.

He composed on the clavichord so as not to disturb anyone. He had to get up early for the hairdresser! (and no doubt the children woke him up)

Which may have accounted in part for why he died so young. frown

I've been truly inquisitive recently about the sleeping plan. I've been dozing like a normie throughout the previous years, not keeping awake until late. Presently I am exceptionally happy with my sleeping plan on account of my mattress, Here are the connections https://www.talkaboutsleep.com/best-mattresses-for-scoliosis/

Hi Nickjohn! Welcome to this piano forum! Do you play the piano?


Playing the piano is learning to create, playfully and deeply seriously, our own music in the world.

Well there you go! I guess Mozart was born too soon. Then again if he had had one of these high-tech mattresses, he would have slept a lot more and composed a lot less! cool Lucky for us he lived in the before-superior-modern-mattress-times. laugh

He would have had a straw mattress restuffed after every harvest - far more hygienic.

Not sure if your being serious but Mozart stayed up late at night to compose. He was often low on funds and under great financial pressure to complete compositions quickly. He would not have slept more if he had a different mattress.

No, I'm not being serious. The topic is absurd to begin with. I'm just playing with it a bit. Especially since another poster linked to a mattress website. (Emojis are usually a good indicator that someone is not being serious BTW.)

— and the link to a mattress website by a first time poster is probably spam.

And I seriously doubt we will hear from that first time poster again.
