Mozart : a life by Maynard Solomon( Book )

41 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 2,455 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Narrative chapters alternate with rich and imaginative in-depth explorations of issues crucial to understanding Mozart - his antic disposition, his penchant for the bawdy, his enigmatic Zoroastran riddles, his perplexing adoption of the code name "Adam," his brilliance as an impresario, his tangled finances, his Masonic creed, and his rending contest with his father, which continued to shadow him even after Leopold Mozart's death in 1787. And in a series of highly original chapters, Solomon probes such musical topics as the finding of Mozart's personal voice in his early serenades; the innovative character of his slow movements; the blend of strangeness and ecstasy in some of his most beautiful instrumental works; and the disquieting effect of his later operas
Late Beethoven : music, thought, imagination by Maynard Solomon( Book )

10 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 1,013 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

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?
