Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (27 January 1756 – 5 December 1791), baptised as Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart, was a prolific and influential composer of the Classical period. Born in Salzburg, Mozart showed prodigious ability from his earliest childhood. Already competent on keyboard and violin, he composed from the age of five and performed before European royalty.

Translated by. Bozman.

Mozart s letters to his sister are especially playful, exhibiting an impish, lighthearted wit reminiscent of his music, and the letters to his wife are equally revealing. Mozart was a faithful correspondent, and this full and expert collection of more than 100 letters covers his brief and tumultuous life, from the years when the child prodigy astonished the courts of Europe to his final days, when he wrote loving tes to his wife and long, money-seeking letters to friends and patrons.

It may be, that this is not how Hans Mersmann feels the great composer should be remembered but, if letters are to have any value, they should represent the true person, not some idealized version.

It may be, that this is not how Hans Mersmann feels the great composer should be remembered but, if letters are to have any value, they should represent the true person, not some idealized version. Whilst I am chastising; who is this Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, attributed with the writin of these letters? Does the author mean Wolfgang Amade Mozart? (Sorry, I can't get an accented 'e' to appear).

Over 100 often hilarious, sometimes sad, but always articulate letters from one of the most charismatic composers in history. Mozart was a faithful correspondent, and this full and expert collection of more than 100 letters covers his brief and tumultuous life, from the years when the child prodigy astonished the courts of Europe to his final days, when he wrote loving notes to his wife and long, money-seeking letters to friends and patrons.

This is really a wonderful book -- the letters include ones Mozart received as well as ones that he sent,
and they are just beautiful ---- This may be hard to believe, but it's a real page turner. - For anyone who loves
Mozart, it is a treasure.

This is a wonderful book for the many people who appreciate the music of Mozart (1756-1791) and want to know about the man. The book contains 141 letters translated in easy to read English to and from Mozart. It also includes a letter that his wife wrote to Emperor Leopold II begging for money six days after his death because she had no money. There are also eight letters that Mozart's father wrote during the early journeys of 1763-68. Mozart's letters are fascinating and very warm, especially the letters that he wrote to his wife. Also very interesting are the letters to and from Mozart to his father, for they help us understand both men.

This selection of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's letters show the same ebullient and warm-hearted spirit that vibrates through his music. It is obvious that these letters were not written for publication. They are as natural as conversation, as intimate as friendship and as warm as love. And they are tremendously fun to read.
One of my favorites concerns a statement that Mozart makes concerning the ease of difficulty in composing opera in German. In a letter dated February, 1783, Mozart writes to his father, "I side with the German. I prefer it even if it costs me more trouble. Every nation has its own opera, why not Germany? Is not German as singable as French and English? Is it not more so than Russian?"
"Even if it costs me more trouble," he writes. Aha! says I. He admitted that it's more trouble to put the German language to music. Gotcha!
To those of us who love his music, Mozart is rendered in these pages, in his own words, just as we expect. I envy the reader who meets him the first time in this book, then approaches his music. It will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

This book is a fun and quick read. It really is a perfect read on a lazy day at a beach, etc. There isn't anything extraordinary here, but to read Mozart's words is fascinating enough. He uses very colorful language( "I kiss your hands 100,000 times"). He is playful, yet serious, and yet also naughty. Yet he just seems to enjoy life. He also speaks of hearing symphonies all at once and says, " the best gift I have my Divine Maker to thank for". What really jumps out at me though, is, Wolfgang seems to be just a regular guy. He realized he was given the gift of music and he lived his life to the fullest. Shouldn't that be everyone's goal? To live their life to the fullest according to the gift that God has given each one of us.
