=========================================

Well, if anything, this volume about Mozart is certainly much better than the one about Wagner in the same "Complete Operas" series by Charles Osborne. Quite unlike the latter, here the author often expresses genuine enthusiasm and affection for the works he writes about; and when he does criticise, as he should, he does so with sensitivity, sensibility and entirely without animosity - which is definitely not the case with Wagner, but that's another story I have told elsewhere.

It is obvious that Mr. Osborne has done a tremendous amount of research. Everything about a particular opera you could possible want to know is there. In addition the author has included excerpts about what was going on in Mozart's life at the time a particular opera was written. Very informative. The book will improve your knowledge, and give you hours of great reading!

This was a book for a course that Professor (Ph.D.) Kip Cranna at the Fromm Institute, in San Francisco. It is very informative, and interesting.
