This is the poignant and compelling story of perhaps the most naturally gifted musical genius of all time. Copiously illustrated with examples of his music, it tells of Mozart's extraordinary childhood travelling the courts of Europe, and of how, after a brief period of fame in Vienna, his fortunes declined until his early death and last resting place in a pauper's grave...
Talented narrators Nigel Anthony and Paul Rhys work well together in rendering this fascinating look at one of the greatest composers in history. They use their prodigious vocal talents and experience to pull back the curtain on the strained relationship between Mozart and his father and his early success as a composer and performer for the royals of Europe. Using an authoritative tone, they deliver the facts, and the more emotional and evocative passages are presented with increasing tension and excitement. Musical passages add to the listening experience, rounding out this fascinating and fulfilling study.
