Book: Mozart "Wolfgang Hildesheimer"
Mozart by Wolfgang Hildesheimer, translated by Marion Faber
Issued by: Farrar, Straus und Giroux, New York
In this definitve biography, Wolfang Hidesheimer demythologizes Mozart, revealing him as a flawed and puzzling human being, but a matchless artist. Hildesheimer's fresh approach to the music itself, his telling quotations from Mozart's letters (Mozart was one of the greatest and most outrageous of letters writers), and his sympathetic but unsentimental insights make this a remarkably readable portrait of one of the most popular composers of all time.
