Two newly discovered pieces of music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart are seen for the first time in public in a house where the master composer once lived, in Salzburg August 2, 2009. An Austrian pianist performed the two pieces for the first time in public on Sunday. The concerto movement and a prelude were originally judged by their archivist, the International Mozarteum Foundation, to be anonymous works. Further analysis determined they had been composed by Mozart when he was 7- or 8-years-old. REUTERS/Calle Toernstroem (AUSTRIA ENTERTAINMENT IMAGES OF THE DAY)
