Summary
  • "Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is one of the great icons of Western music. An amazing prodigy - he toured the capitals of Europe while still a child, astonishing royalty and professional musicians with his precocious skills - he wrote as an adult some of the finest music in the entire European tradition."
  • "Julian Rushton offers a concise and up-to-date biography of this musical genius, combining a well-researched life of the composer with an introduction to the works - symphonic, chamber, sacred, and theatrical - of one of the few musicians in history to have written undisputed masterpieces across every genre of his time. Rushton offers a portrait of the composer, ranging from Mozart the Wunderkind - travelling with his family from Salzburg to Vienna, Paris, London, Rome, and Milan - to the mature author of such classic works as "The Marriage of Figaro", "Don Giovanni", and "The Magic Flute."
  • During the past half-century, scholars have thoroughly explored Mozart's life and music, offering new interpretations of his compositions based on their historical context and providing a factual basis for confirming or, more often, debunking fanciful accounts of the man and his work. Rushton takes full advantage of these biographical and musical studies as well as the definitive New Mozart Edition to provide an accurate account of Mozart's life and, equally important, an insightful look at the music itself, complete with musical examples."--Jacket
