4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By HORAK on August 18, 2007
Format: Paperback
This book was originally published in 1845 and remains to this day a work of reference. It portrays all the essential stations in the life of this composer of great genius. The reason why Holmes's biography is so valuable is no doubt the fact that the author uses large excerpts of Mozart's correspondence and his letters give precious information about the man himself. Edward Holmes then adds precious data concerning dates, names, musicians, places and customs of the late 18th century.
There is also an appendix listing all of Mozart's works and their date of composition as well as a useful index.
The book is masterfully read by David Case for Tantor Media.

This is an excellent read. So many individuals have painted Mozart into some sort of lunatic/genius which is not anywhere close to the truth about a truly amazing individual. This is the first biography on Mozart published in 1845

Format: Hardcover
I am currently listeing to this novel on tape and have found it fascinating. While it is complicated, and as I said a bit murky, I strongly reccomend it to anyone interested in this composer's history.
