Which famous musicians improvise? I bet you didn’t know that Bach, Mozart, Beethoven and Miles Davis were some of the best improvisers of all time. Most of us associate musical improvisation only in jazz music, but that’s only part of it! Mozart began improvising as a child. His Prague Symphony, premiered in 1787, ended with a half hour of improvisation by Mozart himself.
Much of the music composed today depends a lot on improvisation. The creativity of musicians can really influence how a composer writes.
