Mozart’s Women


SKU: 9780060563516


Throughout his life, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was enchanted, amused, aroused, and betrayed by women—his mother, sister, wife, sisters-in-law, female patrons, friends, lovers, and fellow artists—and he was equally complex to them. But ultimately the great composer loved and respected the women he knew intimately and those whom he admired from afar. In this fascinating, evocative, and compellingly readable biography, Jane Glover, acclaimed conductor and acknowledged expert on Mozart’s life and work, brings these remarkable ladies vividly to life—the real women who shared the composer’s tumultuous world and inspired some of his greatest musical achievements, as well as those he dramatized in his magnificent operas.

“Beautifully written and scholarly without seeming so.” “It is Jane Glover’s great gift to show how the women surrounding Mozart…all influenced him.” “Jane Glover has pulled off a coup des livres with her fresh take on Mozart’s life and work.” “Impossible to read Mozart’s Women without being deeply touched by what it reveals of the people closest to the composer.” “a heartfelt and original portrait…[from] one of the world’s finest musical interpreters of Mozart.” “Rich, evocative, compellingly readable, Mozart’s Women illuminates the music and the man, but above all, the women who inspired him.”
