Is anybody familiar with this book or author? I came across it quite by accident at a street vendor's. Seemed to call out to me, lol! 1987 printing first Copyright in 1932 by Scribner's. It's in such excellent condition! (no, I'm not selling!
- I've had so many Mozart
books over the years, including the one by Davenport - looking on Amazon (and the best that I can recall) I would have to agree w/ the 3* reviewer, i.e. the book is well written and easy to read, emotionally involves one w/ Wolfie, but when written the facts were not all there, so as long as that is kept in mind, a worthwhile read.
Now my wife & I buy so many books that we donate many to a local charity; at the moment, I have the first 2 books below on Mozart
(and the Sadie New Grove mainly for a listing of his works) - more up to date but 'drier' reads perhaps?
Now, I've also been contemplating the book below by Wates; 2010 publication date and good reviews - curious if others know this new one?
Finally, I just purchased the DVD 'In Search of Mozart' - great comments but yet to watch completely - will report back! Dave
