Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart by Harriet Castor
  

Synopsis

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart by Harriet Castor

At the age of six, Wolfgang Mozart was giving concerts the rich and famous people of his day. He grew up to compose some of the greatest classical music ever written. The book traces his life from when he was born, in Austria in 1756, to his early death, in 1791, at the age of 35. The narrative tells of his ambitious father Leo, who trailed him round the royal courts of Europe, and of his own erratic behaviour attributed to his genius. The life of a musician/composer, then dependent on patronage from rich people, is vividly described, but great detail about his family also gives an insight into the man.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
