Even in 2020, Mozart continues to fascinate with not only the amazing quality of his music but his bizarre life-story and persona. This book provides a thorough account of Mozart’s life, from the musical accomplishments to his harsh upbringing by his tyrannical father and quirky personality.

Sadly as we know, Mozart died young before he was able to create even more incredible music that would live long after he passed away. Overall this book does a great job of showing us Mozart’s life in its fullest, including 75 unique color illustrations, making it one of my favorite books on Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s life.

W.A. Mozart originally hit the scene in 1919 and blew music lovers and scholars out of the water.
