There are some illustrations mostly portraits and a short discography included as well. The author of this book is not a musicologist: he is a historian. According to him, on the interpretation of Mozart's music he did not hesitate to quote from works of criticism where they make a point better than he could.

There is no bibliography and the index is rather small. Brown, Kristi Ann. Dissertation Ph. University of California, Berkeley, This dissertation presents detailed analyses of the female characters of two popular Mozart operas. The material comes from historical sources, traditions of critical reception, feminist theory and other, to understand the character and to evaluate the relationship between these representations of women and present-day ethical concerns and cultural attitudes about femininity, sexuality and power.
Examination of all the sides of the characters' personality occurs, together with examination of musico-dramatic concepts and consequences of their interaction with other characters because of their personalities. Edwards, Stephen Perry. University of Texas, Austin, This dissertation deals with the diversity of contrasts in Mozart's works, in comparison to other works of the Classical period and proposes a method of analysis that takes into account both surface variety and underlying structure by incorporating several analytical models.
There is a consideration of form, topics and rhythm, as well as a Schenkerian approach to voice-leading structure. For this purpose, in the first two chapters, there is an examination of the exposition of sonata-form movement, according to rhythmic and textural contrasts, means by which they succeed one another in time and there is also an investigation of musical entities that form motivic relations or links by association that are independent of time.
The rest three chapters present a close analysis of three works that the writer finds most representative of an extreme in contrasts: the first movements of the Sonatas in D, K. Grayson, David. Mozart: Piano Concertos Nos. CambridgeUniversity Press, This book belongs to a series of Cambridge Music Handbooks. It is a guide to Mozart's two most popular piano concertos -the D minor, K. It presents the historical background of the works and places them within the context of Mozart's compositional and performance activities at a time when his reputation as both composer and pianist was at its peak.
The special nature of the concerto, as both a form and a genre, is explored through a survey of some of the approaches that critics have taken in discussing Mozart's concertos.
The basis for detailed accounts of the two concertos is provided by a theory of concerto form. The last chapter discusses a wide range of issues of particular interest to modern performers, including historical instruments, orchestra size and seating, cadenzas, basso continuo and improvised embellishments.
This book contains notes on the chapters, a good select bibliography and a rather good index. This work deals with Mozart's piano sonatas. It is divided in three parts. Part one examines the contexts in which the sonatas were composed and in which they were performed, and reviews likely sources of influence. The second part concentrates on the genesis of the sonatas and the surviving autographs, which reveal important information about Mozart's compositional process.
In the third part, the music is studied from the standpoint of rhetoric and there is an investigation of the nature of the musical ideas followed by a discussion of style and expression. There is a detailed analysis of several extracts, ranging from the construction of themes to whole movements.
This book is hoped to appeal to "musical experts and laymen alike". The titles of the operas have been anglicized to make reading easier. There are numbered references to German texts. The work contains quotations from Mozart's letters and tries to get the reader acquainted with the characters of Mozart's operas, in order for them to understand the music and the philosophy behind it. There is a list of characters by opera, a nice and readable "Guide to Operas" on the back, which contains the plots, and also a short references index.
This work contains information regarding music autographs, various works and statements from people that were associated with Mozart. It includes documents and how they got printed, some images of the Operas, illustrations of manuscripts etc. There is a list of manuscripts that are in the British Library. The index and sources are rather short, but the list of illustrations is good.
Libin, Kathryn L. New York University, This dissertation examines the development of a distinctive new idiom for the piano that emerged slowly during Mozart's time, when a gradual shift from the harpsichord to the fortepiano for concert use was underway. There is an examination of the impact on Mozart's keyboard concertos of his transition from harpsichord to piano playing.
These works have been selected for analysis because, according to the author, "they broadly span his career, and constitute his most varied, original and innovative approach to the keyboard. As a single genre, the concertos provide a coherent framework for study of Mozart's keyboard style". There is a survey of documentary evidence included, and followed by an analysis of the instruments that Mozart used the most, as means of understanding Mozart's keyboard writing.
Elements of keyboard idiom that are analyzed in tracing the developments include dynamics, articulation, figuration and handling of texture and range. Musical sources such as Mozart's letters and other documents are used. The dissertation also analyzes aspects of Mozart's later concertos that depend upon the dynamic sensitivity of the piano, and examines Mozart's ways of pointing out special features of the piano in solo entries and other key structural areas.
This book contains important information regarding the tempi of Mozart works. It lists tempi by categories. The first part lists the "Basic Indications", the second part are the "Extreme Indications" and the third part talks about the "Intermediary Indications". There are also listings such as dances and marches, unusual meters and absence of tempo indication. MartyThere are a lot of music examples, notes and a good index, which includes vocal music, orchestral and small ensembles, chamber and instrumental music, with subcategories.
Each of the chapters of this book deals with one movement of the Requiem. There is also information on the conception and "genesis" of the work, and information on performance of it.
There are notes on the chapters, a rather brief bibliography and two indexes, a small index of Mozart's works and a brief general index. The string quartets of Mozart are recognized as models of instrumental structure and style and are here examined from a rhetoric point of view.
They are examined in context to philosophy, performance practice, social context and music analysis. The application of rhetorical principles for understanding a given musical style and repertoire is examined. So, basically the author deals with an analysis of the quartets not so much from the point of view of a musician, but of a philosopher, and tries to analyze their content following the rhetorical guidelines.

With Haydn and Beethoven he brought to its height the achievement of the Viennese Classical school. Unlike any other composer in musical history, he wrote in all the musical genres of his day and excelled in every one. His taste, his command of form, and his range of expression have made him seem the most universal of all composers; yet, it may also be said that his music was written to accommodate the specific tastes of particular audiences. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart —91 was an Austrian composer. Mozart composed music in several genres, including opera and symphony. In all, Mozart composed more than pieces of music.
