What was Mozart really like? Wild? Sublime? Responsible? Fun-loving? Bright? Foul-mouthed? Reading these 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.

In this collection, Robert Spaethling has carefully chosen letters written by Mozart over a span of almost twenty-two years - from his first journey to Italy as a shy teenager to the final months of his life in Vienna. The letters, together with the accompanying introductions, chronicle the composer's life, personal development and artistic growth.

Industry Reviews

"Mozart's Honesty, his awareness of his own genius and his contempt for authority all shine out from these letters."
