Not exclusively Mozart, but many others who were contracted to compose music for the ammusement of a king, duke, duchess, church etc. If these members of the 'divine hierarchy' were dissatisfied with the performance then these composers could possibly be, banished, exiled or beheaded.

Nowadays it has evolved to the point at which an artist could lose the option for a second record, or be forced into obscurity by MTV or the E network.
Nothing has changed, it just smells different - get used to it.
