Mozart and Salieri, an Exclusive Play directed by Sir Jonathan Miller, starring Simon Russell Beale & Russell Tovey
• Internet Connection Required for video content

All performances and films were specially commissioned for the book and it includes twenty contributors from across the arts world including Sir Nicholas Hytner, Sir Jonathan Miller, Simon Russell Beale, Dame Felicity Lott, Sir Thomas Allen, Russell Tovey, contemporary eight-year-old prodigy Alma Deutscher, Paul Morley and many others. There is also expert analysis from leading Mozart authorities Cliff Eisen, Neal Zaslaw and John Irving; The Mozart Project provides an immersive experience for all music lovers and, crucially, brings high-quality classical music to the digital arena.

The Mozart Project is designed exclusively for iPad and includes over three hours of music, two hours of streaming video, (filmed performances, demonstrations and short films) four hours of interviews extracts, and seven panel discussions chaired by Paul Morley. It also includes new and exclusive contributions from luminaries across the spectrum of classical music, giving a fascinating insight into Mozart’s life and works.

Amongst the many highlights is an exclusive reading of Alexander Pushkin’s poetic drama Mozart and Salieri, which brings, for the first time, BAFTA award winning Simon Russell Beale as Salieri under the direction of Sir Jonathan Miller and stars HBO and BBC star Russell Tovey as Mozart.  

Filmed highlights include performances from acclaimed period instrument group, Ensemble DeNOTE, exclusive access to the Mozart Autograph Vault in Salzburg and a look at the treasured Mozart related artefacts of a descendant of Mozart’s landlord. The Mozart Project also explores areas of controversy and intrigue: Does Pushkin’s diary confirm speculation over the Salieri poisoning? What can Pauli Hagenauer tell us about the Colloredo affair? Dispelling myths, and raising new questions, The Mozart Project casts new light over the life and music of one of the most iconic cultural figures of all time.

Customer Reviews

The Mozart Project - perfect fusion of technology and scholarship

This is one of the first eBooks that I’ve seen in iBooks that combines appropriate scholarship with innovative technology, and to do both at such a high level of quality. For those who don’t know the “big names” in Mozart scholarship, all you need to see if Cliff Eisen, Neal Zaslaw, and Simon Keefe’s names with this book to know that you’re reading something of high intellectual integrity and accuracy. The other contributors are certainly no slouches either, including the great director Sir Jonathan Miller, who directs the play, “Mozart and Salieri,” which is included in chapter 10 of the book. Each chapter features musical examples linked immediately within the book (so no clumsy searches for the link to the music), and the interviews within the chapters include the great Mozart performers of this century, including Sir Thomas Allen and Dame Felicity Lott, among many others. The price for this book is exceptional, especially given the superb quality of the sources, and the clean, easy-to-use interface of the iBook. While the iBook will have significant value for Mozart scholars and musicians, it is not impossible to read for novices (the two creators of the iBook are not professional musicians themselves, but they’ve clearly relied on musical experts within the text), so anyone looking to learn more about Mozart and listen to his music will find this iBook to be a wonderful resource. This belongs in your iBooks library!

Simply Amazing

The Mozart Project is an incredible iBook. I can't put it down!

Truly extraordinary- the single finest ebook to date

Or at least single finest iBook. The Mozart project shows the potential of an iBook as never before. The quality of the production, music chosen and interpreted and seamless video integration is close to perfect. I am no scholar of music, just a simple listener who loves Mozart and this book has been an education and a delight.
