Mozart : A Life

Liszt once said that Mozart composed more bars than a trained copyist could write in a lifetime. One of the world's most enduringly popular musicians, Mozart had a profound influence on Western music and on his contemporaries such as Beethoven and Haydn. Johnson focuses on the importance of Mozart's music, uncovering his wondrous output of composition and his gift and skill with instruments. In addition to his many insights into Mozart's music, Johnson also challenges myths about Mozart, including those about his health, religion and relationships.
