Most Helpful Customer Reviews

A brilliant book, telling the story of two of the most famous musical prodigies ever--one of my very favorite books! Catherine Brighton captures the formal organization of Mozart's music in disciplined forms on the page, and with such real, beautifully painted characters. Maria Anna Mozart (the older sister) tells the childhood she shared with Wolfgang Amadeus (her younger brother). Brighton's prose and pictures are tightly organized; like classical music and architecture, the book advances quickly from one fascinating contrast to another. Each double page is an individual episode, each scene gracefully framed to set it apart. In succession, they gracefully tell the children's still-amazing story, from Wolfgang's youngest musical accomplishments (at only four he was accompanying Maria Anna's singing, when she was only nine), on through their years of touring Europe. On one double page they begin their tour on a boat on the huge Rhine; on another, they play keyboard, blind-folded for Melchior Grimm himself, in Paris--Maria Anna complaining like a real, wise child, "We're not performing monkeys, Wolfi." Compassionately, another shows them ill with smallpox, adults quietly tending and praying for them. Maria Anna lives as in no other book I know, for within these classical-like strictures, she is obviously a prodigious talent like her brother, yet too a well-rounded person--now with eagerness, now distaste for unfair treatment, now with such love for her brother--and always with the finest of manners and integrity. Historically accurate, packed with true detail (don't miss J. C. Bach in London--or all the cats and dogs throughout), it is a true feast for eyes and ears. Do you love Mozart? Indeed, you may be wishing you could do what Maria Anna is doing on the last page--giving her little brother the tenderest of farewell hugs as he prepares to tour Italy--but without her.
