Wow. Who knew that Mozart's older sister was a child prodigy before he was? She went on tours and was considered one of the finest pianists in Europe at age twelve. He used to sit for hours and listen to her practice when he was little, before he learned to play himself. They played duets on their tours, until the one where she was left behind (probably because of money issues, and of course because she was a girl it was considered improper for her to do things like play the organ, which required moving your legs). And then she was completely ignored by history. So sad. ( )

This book manages a tricky accomplishment: celebrating a young woman's talent, drive, and achievements without downplaying the disadvantages she had just because she wasn't a man.

Great art. Love the fabric collages. ( )

In my years of musical education, I was not aware that Mozart had a sister, or that she was as gifted musically as he was. I enjoyed this story of what her life was like. ( )

An enduring love between Maria and her music. This is very fun to read, I really appreciated the musical references (i assume) stated on each page.They give more quality to the book. I have no idea what I would use this for but it's a fantastic read.

Appealing introductory biography of Mozart's sister, Maria Anna, and her relationship with her younger brother. ( )
