By Julian Rushton
A prodigy who toured the capitals of Europe as a child, astonishing royalty and professional musicians with his precocious skills, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in his adulthood wrote some of the finest music in the European tradition, becoming an icon of Western music.
Julian Rushton offers a concise and modern biography of Mozart, combining a well-researched life of the composer with an introduction to the major works—symphonic, chamber, sacred, and theatrical—of one of the few composers to have created undisputed masterpieces in every genre of his time.
"The finest short biography of Mozart that I know—incisive, insightful, and elegantly written," noted Mozart expert Cliff Eisen of the Music Department at King's College, London. "If I had to recommend one book that explained the man and his music, this would be it."
