Publisher's Summary

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's name remains synonymous with genius, but his life was a whirlwind of controversy, jealousy, and clashing egos. In this highly enjoyable biography, Alexander Kennedy vividly brings Mozart and his times to life.

Here we see the sweeping grandeur of the courts Mozart visited as a child prodigy and the grasping desperation of his scheming father. We follow the composer through the flush of his first love up through his marriage to Constanze Weber, and from his first, half-plagiarized concertos to masterpieces like The Magic Flute. We watch Mozart clash with family and friends, with archbishops and emperors, and we feel again the tragedy of his mysterious, premature death. And above all, we hear his eternal music, music that captivated a continent, defined a genre, and changed the world.

"I pay no attention whatever to anybody's praise or blame. I simply follow my own feelings." - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Humdrum biography

For someone who knows a certain amount about Mozart, this biography brought no new insights, and the reader rattled it off.

Nice and compacts bio. I wanted to learn a bit about Mozart but did not want to invest 20 hours
