What was Mozart really like, wild? responsible? fun? bright? This book is full of modern translations of Mozart's letters and we learn in his own words that he was all of the above and more. We see the composer at his most intimate, expressing his feelings about life, love, music, and the world around him. The author choose 275 letters and post-scripts written by Mozart over a span of 22 years and from his journey to Italy when he was 14 to the final months of his life in Vienna. These modern translations into English are faithful to the original German, even to the point of misspellings which abound in the early letters.

I am looking forward to reading this book. I absolutely love listening to Mozart. I have Image of Mozart tattooed on my leg and a work of his in Latin tattooed on the back of my leg. The book arrived in great condition.
