Lovereading view...

This completely fresh take on Mozart and his life is utterly compelling and quite beautifully written. It really is a must for any musician and particularly one who has a fascination for one of the greatest musicians ever. Would he have been the genius without all the women in his life? Read it to find out.

Synopsis

Mozart's Women by Jane Glover

Throughout his life Mozart was inspired, fascinated, amused, aroused, hurt, disappointed and betrayed by women; and he appeared equally fascinating to them. But, first and last, Mozart loved and respected women. His mother, his sister, his wife, her sisters, his patrons, his friends, his lovers and his artists all figure prominently in his life. And his experience, observation and understanding of women reappear, spectacularly, in the characters he created in his operas, who constitute yet futher proof of his true genius and phenomenal understanding of human nature.

Reviews

‘Jane Glover has pulled off a coup des livres with her fresh take on Mozart’s life and work…ought to be required reading for practitioners and will equally enlighten the most casual listener’ John Allison, Sunday Telegraph

‘Readable, informative and moving…Glover neatly and satisfyingly ties up the loose ends in the story of the genius whose most astonishing musical miracles were achieved in his all-too-brief adulthood. Her passion for the music shines through this touching, vividly told story’ Hugh Canning, Sunday Times
