Mozart by Alexander Kennedy Book Summary:
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s name is today synonymous with genius, but his life was a whirlwind of controversy, jealousy, and clashing egos. In this highly readable short biography, Alexander Kennedy brings Mozart and his times vividly to life. Here we see the sweeping grandeur of the courts Mozart visited as a child prodigy, and the grasping desperation of his scheming father. We follow the composer through the flush of his first love up through his marriage to Constanze Weber, and from his first, half-plagiarized concertos to masterpieces like The Magic Flute. We watch Mozart clash with family and friends, with archbishops and emperors, and we feel again the tragedy of his mysterious early death. And above all, we hear his eternal music: music that captivated a continent, defined a genre, and changed the world. “I pay no attention whatever to anybody's praise or blame.

Mozart by MAYNARD SOLOMON Book Summary:
The apparently effortless delight of Mozart's music seems so godlike in its inspiration that critics often give way to awe. The result is that Mozart studies are either highly technical exercises in musicology, or gushing tributes which explain little. In this biography, Maynard Solomon tackles the most intriguing and important issue of all, the roots of Mozart's creativity, and finds them in previously misunderstood details of his life. At its heart, for all his boundless energy and genius, lies rejection by his family, his patrons and his city.
Mozart by Marcel BRION Book Summary:
« Je ne suis pas musicologue. Ce livre est celui de ma passion, de plus en plus émerveillée, pour Mozart », disait Marcel Brion de cette biographie inspirée. Publiée pour la première fois en 1955, rééditée jusqu'en 1985, elle a gardé tous ses atouts : sûreté de l'information, de la part d'un très bon germaniste ; démarche simple et directe, sans lourdeur technique ni complication psychanalytique ; style pétillant, comme il convient lorsque l'on court de Londres à Prague, de Paris à Venise, et bien sûr à Vienne. Rien pourtant de superficiel dans ce récit, où à la joie de la création se mêle le drame de l'existence. Une biographie lumineuse du génie qui enchanta l'Europe, et qui continue de la séduire. Marcel Brion, de l'Académie française, a écrit sur Goethe, Robert Schumann, Rembrandt ou Léonard de Vinci. L'&Oelig;il, l'Esprit et la Main du peintre a été publié chez Plon.
1: Violin and Keyboard: The Duo Repertoire: Volume I: From the Seventeenth Century to Mozart by Abram Loft Book Summary:
This wonderful book is written for musicians seeking to build or extend a sonata repertoire. Analyses are given of both well-known and many lesser-known pieces of music, with recommendations on performance as well as descriptions of difficulties. Many are suitable for student or amateur musicians. This is mainly a book for violinists, though; many of the keyboard parts of these pieces are little more than continuo accompaniment. The second volume, detailing the music of Beethoven onward, contains descriptions of music that puts the keyboardist on more equal footing with the violinist.
