Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is felt by many people to be the greatest composer who ever lived. Dominated and shaped by a highly intelligent but frustrated and ambitious father, his story sees the development of a unique genius, from precocious and often endearing childhood to liberated fulfilment, unexpected poverty as money slipped through his fingers, and a tragically early death. Generously illustrated by Mozart’s music, from his fifth to his final year, this biographical portrait reveals a fascinating yet elusive character, drawing richly on the words of the composer himself and those who knew him. This biography comes with 2½ hours of music by Mozart. Audio samples are contained in the text: just tap to listen while you read.
