very entertaining overview of Mozart's life
This is a short, well-organized review of Mozart's life, well-read & with good audio momentum. It touches on Mozart's childhood, key relationships with his father & sister, the "business" of being a child prodigy & later, an aspiring composer of symphony, incidental music & opera, marriage, & financial machinations. If you don't know a lot about Mozart, this is an excellent introduction. It treads lightly on music theory & analysis, which is a good thing. It could not be so short & do that. And Audible has a couple of other titles that attempt to do that, more broadly than just Mozart of course, if you want to go down that road.

Not A Light Weight but Interesting
I suspect those with a casual interest in Mozart or classical music may find this a bit long and boring but for the serious classical music listener this this a tour de force and well worth listening to. Author provides a greater, in depth look at Mozart's life through his letters and other historical material. Fans of the movie "Amadeus" may well be disappointed at that piece of Hollywood fiction. Well narrated.
