W.A. Mozart

4.4 of 5 stars 4.40  ·  rating details  ·  5 ratings  ·  2 reviews
Hermann Abert's classic biography, first published in German more than eighty years ago and itself based on the definitive mid-nineteenth century study by Otto Jahn, remains the most informed and substantial biography of Mozart in any language. The book is both the fullest account of the composer’s life and a deeply skilled analysis of his music.

This book deserves a five star rating because it is quite simply the most profoundly complete work about Mozart ever written. It is now translated into English so that even more scholars and enthusiasts can benefit from its collective wisdom.
Great book, Abert's grasp of musical style change is incredible, and Eisen is great at presenting Abert's take and then his own, keeping them separate so you can see how research has evolved. Too bad the darn thing is so heavy that you need a wheeled backpack simply to carry it around - they should have issued it in two volumes.
