While on a journey to Prague with his wife for the opening night of Don Giovanni, Mozart is caught picking an orange on the grounds of a stately home. But when the resident family finds out who they are dealing with, they are delighted to be in the presence of the celebrated composer and invite him to their daughter’s wedding. This vivid and imaginative depiction captures both the humorous and the more pensive side of the genius composer.
"A masterpiece in European literature, a novella to set beside Thomas Mann's "Death in Venice" or Tolstoy's "Kreutzer Sonata."" --"Observer"
