Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0393328309, Paperback)
"A wonderful collection that gives Mozart a voice as a son, husband, brother and friend." —New York Times Book Review"Mozart's honesty, his awareness of his own genius and his contempt for authority all shine out from these letters."—Sunday Times (London). " In Mozart's Letters, Mozart's Life, Robert Spaethling presents "Mozart in all the rawness of his driving energies" (Spectator), preserved in the "zany, often angry effervescence" of his writing (Observer). Where other translators have ignored Mozart's atrocious spelling and tempered his foul language, "Robert Spaethling's new translations are lively and racy, and do justice to Mozart's restlessly inventive mind" (Daily Mail). Carefully selected and meticulously annotated, this collection of letters "should be on the shelves of every music lover" (BBC Music Magazine). 16 pages of illustrations

These letters span almost 22 years, from Mozart's first journey to Italy as a shy teenager to his final months in Vienna. The translations capture his unique idiom and spirit, retaining the misspellings and inaccuracies of the original German.
