About the Authors
  • The vibrant intellectual, social and political climate of mid eighteenth-century Europe presented opportunities and challenges for artists and musicians alike. This book focuses on Mozart the man and musician as he responds to different aspects of that world. It reveals his views on music, aesthetics and other matters; on places in Austria and across Europe that shaped his life; on career contexts and environments, including patronage, activities as an impresario, publishing, theatrical culture and financial matters; on engagement with performers and performance, focusing on Mozart's experiences as a practicing musician; and on reception and legacy from his own time through to the present day. Probing diverse Mozartian contexts in a variety of ways, the contributors reflect the vitality of existing scholarship and point towards areas primed for further study. This volume is essential reading for students and scholars of late eighteenth-century music and for Mozart aficionados and music lovers in general.

    • A thorough and up-to-date resource on the historical, cultural and professional contexts of Mozart's music, enabling deeper understanding of his works
    • Structured by topic to allow easy access to particular aspects of eighteenth-century music and society, and Mozart's life, interests and influence
    • Thirty-five concise essays by leading scholars present information in a lively and accessible format that will appeal to students and music lovers alike
