Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm a huge fan of Nannerl Mozart, who dazzled Europe and held her own at the clavier right alongside her genius brother. She must have had a hard row to hoe but the affectionate Mozart family must have given her plenty of love and encouragement. Once she had to stop touring, she must have felt abandoned, especially when Leopold, her father, discouraged her attempts to compose.
Later she married a much older man with six children, largely to escape spinsterhood and probably under Leopold's orders. She never really had a chance to blossom to her full potential like, say, Maria Theresa von Paradis, the blind cellist and composer in Vienna. There was a lot of "if only" to Nannerl's story. I have to admire her, though little is really known about what she was like as a person.
This novel has a bizarre point of view problem with the way the author's choice of narrative, which I found hard to like. I won't give it away. A simple narrative from Nannerl's own point of view would have been more insightful and enjoyable.
