"Brilliant." (New York Times Book Review)"Clearly the Mozart biography for our time." (Robert L. Marshall, Brandeis University)"I do not know a musician's biography as satisfying and as moving as this one." (Edward W. Said, New Yorker)"Maynard Solomon writes with the grace of a novelist, the insight of a philosopher, and the precision of a by: This is a short, brief, to-the-point book about Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, which, for all its brevity, is probably the only book a general reader would want to consult to be fully informed of his life and work/5(93). The book Mozart the Man Revealed, was very sad I thought. Mozart wrote such joyous music, and it is tragic that he was buried in an unmarked grave with a few other bodies. It is a mark of his greatness that Salzburg, Vienna, and even St Gilgen really revere him now/5(99). Poppy and Mozart is yet another great book in the Poppy series. Though plot isn't really the main focus of these books, both this one and "Poppy and Vivaldi" have a bit more of a "storyline" than the others. In this one, Poppy and his musical friend travel around Paris taking in the artistic sights and sounds, hearing lots of Mozart's music /5(60).
Mozart was a phenomenal genius, and this short book -- short just like Mozart's life -- gives a marvelous sense of that genius. For those who don't know much about Mozart's life, and don't know whether or not he was a founding member of the Dave Clark Five, this is the book for you/5. Mozart: A Life is the well researched biography of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and was a finalist in for the Pulitzer in This narrative reads like a novel with Mozart's musical scores and notes throughout as we follow him through his early childhood in Salzburg to his acclaimed performances in the capitals of Europe as a child prodigy/5. This book is about Mozart's life Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. A long time ago, in Salzburg, a child who was called Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born. He pla. 1. Another book in English on Mozart might not seem to be a pressing need just now after the extravagant outpouring of the th anniversary of his birth last year, but we have waited a long time for this one. When, eighty-eight years ago, Hermann Abert’s W.A. .
Hermann Abert's classic biography, first published in German more than eighty years ago and itself based on the definitive mid-nineteenth century study by Otto Jahn, remains the most informed and substantial biography of Mozart in any language. The book is both the fullest account of the composer’s life and a deeply skilled analysis of his music.3/5(2). Solid bio of Mozart for a page book. While being a big fan of Mozart's music, he is the only classical musician whose music I identify with. This was a very good book /5. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (–91) was an Austrian composer. Mozart composed music in several genres, including opera and symphony. His most famous compositions included the motet Exsultate, Jubilate, K (), the operas The Marriage of Figaro () and Don Giovanni (), and the Jupiter Symphony (). In all, Mozart composed more. While I really enjoyed this book, I have a sneaking suspicion that it played fast and loose with Mozart's life. The writer, in an effort, I suppose, to make it more true-to-life and perhaps more enjoyable reading, wrote this in kind of a novel-ish way, embellishing all kinds of situations with characters' grimaces, groans, exclamations, pacing back and forth, etc/5.
