Mozart Studies 2, Hardback Book

Mozart Studies 2 Hardback

Edited by Simon P. (University of Sheffield) Keefe

Part of the Cambridge Composer Studies series

Description

Cultural, historical and reception-related contexts are central to understanding Mozart, one of the greatest and most famous musicians of all time.

Widening and refining the lens through which the composer is viewed, the essays in Mozart Studies 2 focus on themes, issues, works and repertories perennially popular among Mozart scholars of all kinds, pointing to areas primed for future study and also suitable for investigation by musicians outside the scholarly community.

Following on from the first Mozart Studies volume, internationally renowned contributors bring new perspectives to bear on many of Mozart's most popular works, as well as the composer's letters, biography, and reception.

Chapters are grouped according to topics covered and collectively affirm the vitality of Mozart scholarship and the significant role it continues to play in defining and redefining musicological priorities in general.
