At Ebury Street, which was quite rural at the time and considered more salubrious for the family, Wolfgang Mozart wrote his first two symphonies. In the autumn of 1764, the family went to live in Thrift Street (now Frith Street), in Soho. The Mozarts left England in August 1765 bound for Holland.
Philip Jackson studied sculpture at Farnham School of Art and has had numerous individual exhibitions. He has finished the last details of the recently cast bronze Mozart sculpture, which is now being being patinated.
It is hoped that the statue will be unveiled in October. For further information, contact: The Mozart Bicentenary Statue Appeal, 28 Draycott Place, London SW3 2SB, telephone 071-584 5850.
