Mozart : a life by Maynard Solomon( Book )

Mozart: a life is based on an unsurpassed knowledge of the documentary sources, including numerous documents that have not previously appeared in any biography of the composer. It offers a beautifully written and absorbing narrative of Mozart's life, from his birth in 1756 and childhood in Salzburg to the extraordinary decade of acclaimed performances in the capitals of Europe, where he was honored by royal families and adoring audiences, to his emergence as a prolific young composer, his status as Salzburg's favorite son in the 1770s, his conquest of Vienna, his marriage there, his financial vicissitudes, his later journeys to Prague and Germany, his deepening melancholia, his final triumphs, and his premature death in 1791
Late Beethoven : music, thought, imagination by Maynard Solomon( Book )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 1,007 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Maynard Soloman's Late Beethoven investigates the phenomenon of the final phase, focusing especially on the striking metamorphosis in Beethoven's system of beliefs that began early in his fifth decade and eventually amounted to a sweeping realignment of his views of nature, antiquity, divinity, and human purpose. Using the composer's letters, diaries, and conversation books, Solomon traces Beethoven's attraction to a constellation of heterogeneous ideas, drawn from Romanticism, Freemasonry, comparative religion, Eastern initiatory ritual, Mediterranean mythology, aesthetics, and classical and contemporary thought. Through these often arcane sources, Beethoven gained access to a vast reservoir of imagery and ideas with the potential to expand music's expressive and communicative reach. This "multitude of productive images," writes Solomon, "provides kindling for the blaze of his imagination.""--Jacket

Wolfgang Mozart by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( Visual )

4 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

He was vulgar, extravagant and bawdy. But inside this childish man lived history's greatest musical genius. As a toddler, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's musical gifts made him the darling of Europe's highest courts. But as a man, his rebellion against a domineering father led him to a life of gambling, debt and excess. A master whose work would revolutionize nearly every area of music. Mozart's sudden death at age 35 is considered by many to be the greatest tragedy in the history of music. Why was a composer of such unremitting genius left to die in poverty?
