9780060563516: Mozart's Women: His Family, His Friends, His Music

Throughout his life, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was enchanted, amused, aroused, and betrayed by women—his mother, sister, wife, sisters-in-law, female patrons, friends, lovers, and fellow artists—and he was equally complex to them. But ultimately the great composer loved and respected the women he knew intimately and those whom he admired from afar. In this fascinating, evocative, and compellingly readable biography, Jane Glover, acclaimed conductor and acknowledged expert on Mozart's life and work, brings these remarkable ladies vividly to life—the real women who shared the composer's tumultuous world and inspired some of his greatest musical achievements, as well as those he dramatized in his magnificent operas.

About the Author:

Jane Glover is one of our preeminent conductors and an expert on Mozart. She studied music at St. Hugh's College, Oxford, and subsequently completed her doctorate on seventeenth-century Venetian opera. She is Music Director of Chicago's Music of the Baroque and conducts regularly with the Chicago Opera Theater. In addition to the New York City Opera, she has conducted at all the major symphony and chamber orchestras in Britain -- at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, the English National Opera and Glyndebourne -- and appears regularly at the BBC Proms. She works extensively in the United States, Europe and Australia. She is also a regular broadcaster, with highlights that include a television series on Mozart and the radio series Opera House. She received the honor of Commander of the British Empire (CBE) in 2003.

Review:

‘Jane Glover’s elegant and fascinating book illuminates an aspect of Mozart, and of his work, that has often been touched on but never with such detail and insight. Her vivid portraits enable us appreciate how deeply the remarkable women in his life served as both emotional and artistic muses, and how their spirit informs his masterworks . Glover has lived Mozart’s music intimately, and her knowledge of it and love for it make her a privileged guide to its endless riches, and to how originally and brilliantly Mozart uses it to create some of the most memorable female characters in all of opera.’ Renée Fleming

‘Jane Glover has produced a winner, showing us Mozart from a fresh and fascinating viewpoint: the women in his life. Constanze, for instance, emerges a different creature from the way she is usually portrayed, tempting the reader to revise judgement on her. Written in a delightful, accessible style, this is a book that anyone with an interest in Mozart should have. For the singer it is an indispensable treasure trove of information – altogether, hugely enjoyable’

Dame Janet Baker

‘Nowadays it seems that Mozart’s genius had always existed, fully formed, from the first. But genius does not flourish in isolation. It is Jane Glover’s great gift to show how the women surrounding Mozart – his sister Nannerl, his wife Constanze, and her three talented sisters – all influenced him, making their own contributions to the creation of the most fascinating, dazzling, and complex women on the opera stage’

Judith Flanders, author of Circle of Sisters and The Victorian House

‘Beautifully written and scholarly without seeming so’

Dame Felicity Lott
