Book Description:

The historical background and aesthetic contexts of the work as well as the music itself are explored in this guide to Mozart's last and most celebrated symphony. Separate chapters devoted to each movement of the symphony interweave musical discussion with a broad array of topics.

Review:

"...it is a delight to find such a text immediately setting about debunking the kind of canonical valorization which is our critical heritage since the Back Revival. No mere collection of empirical data here, however, as Sisman links audience rowdiness and aestheic attitudes with unproblematic ease; a critical turn which should be less alien to more writers." Steve Sweeney-Turner, The Musical Times
