Published to complement Mozart Studies (published in 1991), Mozart Studies 2 offers a forum for the most important trends in recent Mozart scholarship, including substantial contributions in gender and genre studies, close readings of individual works (among them the "Prague" symphony and Le nozze di Figaro), textual and contextual research, and new directions in analysis, both for the operas and instrumental music. At the same time, it also aims to suggest directions for future research. In addition to Cliff Eisen, the contributors include leading Mozart scholars, among them Mary Hunter, John Platoff, Wolf-Dieter Seiffert, and Elaine Sisman.

Industry Reviews

`each author has thought-provoking ideas to contribute, and all succeed in persuading us to reexamine certain scholarly assumptions and habits from fresh perspectives ... welcome addition to an ever-growing corpus of writings on Mozart, whose inexhaustability as a subject for scholarly enquiry is here once again confirmed.' Floyd K Grave, Notes, March 2000 `He ... has devoted much of his scholarly work to the Salzburg period rather than the last decade of Mozart's life' David Wyn Jones, Musical Times, Spring 1999.
