What was Mozart really like? Wild? Sublime? Responsible? Fun-loving? Bright? Foul-mouthed? Reading these sparkling new translations of Mozart's letters, we learn in his own words that he was all of these and much more. Here is the composer at his most intimate and unguarded, expressing his feelings about life, love, music and the world around him.

"Should be on the shelves of every music-lover." BBC Music Magazine

"No one interested in Mozart and in inspired letter-writing should miss this volume." Alfred Bendel
