Mozart

Julian Rushton

Master Musicians Series

Rushton offers a concise and up-to-date biography of this musical genius, combining a well-researched life of the composer with an introduction to the works. During the past half-century, scholars have thoroughly explored Mozart's life and music, offering new interpretations of his compositions based on their historical context and providing a factual basis for confirming or, more often, debunking fanciful accounts of the man and his work. Rushton takes full advantage of these biographical and musical studies as well as the definitive New Mozart Edition to provide an accurate account of Mozart's life and, equally important, an insightful look at the music itself, complete with musical examples.
