Description

Mozart's music still speaks to us across the centuries, yet our views of the composer is often clouded by myth. Here David Cairns distils a lifetime's knowledge to tell Mozart's story afresh though some of his greatest works - the operas. From the early workds to The Magic Flute, he shows us how Mozart's operas can deeply enrich our experience of his music as a whole, and radically transform our understanding of the man.'We will be very lucky if the 250th anniversary of Mozart's birth produces a more perceptive and moving book than this' Nicholas Kenyon, Spectator
