Publishers Description: The first comprehensive life and works of the composer in over sixty years, by a leading Mozart specialist. Our understanding of Mozarts life and music has broadened immensely in recent years. Much new material has come to light, including discoveries of musical sources and fresh ways of interpreting known ones. Studies in the chronology of Mozarts works, his compositional process, his relationship to the world around himthese and many other areas have yielded new thinking that has challenged or overturned the inherited wisdom. In Mozart: The Early Years renowned music historian Stanley Sadie discusses all aspects of the composers life and music, relating them to the social, economic, cultural, and musical environments in which he worked. Drawing substantially on family correspondence, Sadie illuminates Mozarts world and his relationships with employers, colleagues, and family. Individual works are discussed in sequence and related to the events of the composers life. 16 pages of illustrations
