The greatest mind in Western music is examined by a National Book Award-winning writer on culture and psychology in this concise account of the life of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The composer's unshakable hold on the public's fascination can only be strengthened by the historian and biographer Peter Gay's bold new perspective. His passionate and painstaking research reveals truths more fascinating than the myths that have long shrouded the maestro's life. Here is the archetypal child prodigy whose genius triumphed over early precociousness and who later broke away from a loving but tyrannical father to pursue his vision unhampered.

This is the perfect biography for anyone who has ever wanted to know about Mozart but does not want to dig through massive tomes.

    " The subject matter was interesting, but I did not like the fact that the information was not presented in chronological order. I felt that at certain points the writing was a bit too dense for the subject matter. "

    " A nice, simple and short introduction to Mozart! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Paul Jellinek | 2/14/2014

    " A briskly written, sympathetic portrait of one of the greatest geniuses ever to grace the human race. This book sparkles like one of Mozart's early piano concertos, and was a joy from start to finish. "

    " I had read a bit of Peter Gay's work in the past (his shorter biography of Freud) and never noticed his writing, which is, in most cases, a compliment. I couldn't help but feel that this work could of had a simpler tone. And I wasn't crazy about the book's organization either, which was more topical than chronological. The chronological jumping around just doesn't do it for me with biographies. That said, Peter Gay is Peter Gay and I respect his scholarship immensely. "
