Mozart: The Man Revealed
By: John Suchet
DISCOVER THE TRUTH ABOUT THE WORLD’S MOST-LOVED COMPOSER
Musical history is full of tormented geniuses, tortured despite – or because of – their enormous talent. Yet perhaps the greatest musical virtuoso the world has ever known cannot be counted among them. Though he faced great hardships, Mozart was surely the happiest composer who ever lived.
In Mozart: The Man Revealed, John Suchet breathes new life into the story of the ‘boy genius’, revealing a complex character, yet one who always remained comfortable with himself and at ease with his gift. His musical legacy may be immortal, but the man behind the music was gloriously human.
