    of both his personal as well as his professional life. Melograni offers such a book. If like me, you are reading your first book on Mozart, this is an excellent introduction to the man and his I found most intriquing about Mozart was his transformation from child prodigy to a mature and musical genius in his adult years. The legendary composer himself offers intriguing glimpses of his life and personality in these passages from letters to family and friends. In addition to firsthand insights into Mozart's thoughts on music, readers will find intimate reflections on religion, love, travel, friendship, and other matters. Extensive annotations provide background for each excerpt.

      MOZART, The Man and the Artist as Revealed in His Own Words by Friedrich Kerst - FULL AudioBook wolfgang Amadeus mozart - SUBSCRIBE to Greatest Audio Books. A definitive scholarly life of Mozart, the musician, with much of the material drawn from his letters and other contemporaneous documents. There is no spark of the dramatist in the welding of these facts into a whole, but the book emerges as a sound study of the man and the musician, technical enough to satisfy the professional, popular enough for the layman.

    The book is both the fullest account of the composer’s life and a deeply skilled analysis of his music. Proceeding chronologically from to , the book interrogates every aspect of Mozart’s life, influences, and experience; his personality; his religious and secular dimensions; and the social context of the time.3/5(2). Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. His name is one of the most recognizable names in history and one of the most enduring of composers. At age 5, this “wunderkinder” took to the stage and began his life as a prolific and celebrated creator-genius of such luminous works .
