Description

In the opinion of this biographer, the life of Mozart has long been obscured by legend, and the runaway international success of "Amadeus" only further distorted the image. In his comprehensive study of the composer, Volkmar Braunbehrens examines everyday life in the Vienna of the reforming emperor Joseph II to reveal not only a man of strong passions, firm convictions, and lively wit, but also to dispel many personal and professional myths. Brimming with detail, the biography also paints a portrait of Vienna at its height. The work is aimed at music-lovers, students of music and history of music, and opera.show more
