About this Item

Dust jacket complete & unclipped. Black cloth with bright gilt titling on spine. No ownership marks. 215 pages clean and tight. THIS engaging new biography chronicles the journeys of the teenage musical prodigy with his father to Italy, the cradle of opera. Their travels took them to the cities of Milan, Florence, Rome, Venice, Bologna and Naples, brought them into contact with many of the most important musical figures of the day and culminated in the operas Mitridate, Re di Ponto, Lucia Silla and Ascanio in Alba, all composed before Mozart's sixteenth birthday. Iwo and Pamela Zafuski's sources include contemporary documentation and the Mozarts' correspondence. The authors have also undertaken considerable research into the routes father and son took through Italy, thus bringing the young composer's travels vividly to life. Praise for Chopin's Poland. `A highly readable and enjoyable study . not merely a biography but an evocation of the background to Chopin's early life. The Zaruskis' musical commentary is fresh, clear and informative.' - BBC Music Magazine. `The authors of this book succeed admirably in revealing the historical background against which Chopin developed . well written.' - Denis Brass, Catholic Herald. Praise for The Young Liszt. `An absorbing read . an engrossing portrait of young Franz.' - Classical Music. The authors are both accomplished pianists and teachers of music. Together they have written Mozart's Europe, The Scottish Autumn of Frederick Chopin, and two children's books, How the World Makes Music and Music Through the Ages.
