About this title

Synopsis:

Includes CD of the piano music of Mozart, with orchestra, and solo, performed by the author. Stranded in Milan by a train strike, a down-on-his-luck music scholar finds a mysterious document. Could it be the diary Mozart kept when he was an adolescent, traveling through Europe with his father? If authentic, the diary could catapult Matthew Pierce into wealth and fame. His search for the truth leads him into a dazzling world of Europe's wealthiest and most gifted musicians and aristocrats. But the brilliance of his surroundings is clouded by intrigue, threats, and murder. Matthew becomes both searcher and prey, and the peril mounts. Traveling across Europe with an entourage of divas and gentry, Matthew unravels the fiendish plots that threaten him and his friends, while giving us the Mozart diary, a new and delightful insight into the world of one of the greatest musicians ever to have lived. Harrison Slater, internationally known Mozart scholar and performer, makes a terrific debut into the world of literary mysteries.

About the Author:

Harrison Slater combines the versatile careers of musicologist, pianist and novelist. Of his three books on Mozart, the last is the mystery novel, Night Music (the product of seven years of research and writing), which opens the world of Mozart's life and music to a worldwide audience. For his first book, Slater (the author's pen name since 1995) traveled to fifty-five cities in nine European countries and completed his exhaustive research with visits and correspondence to archives throughout Europe. The resulting comprehensive reference book, In Mozart's Footsteps, has been called an amazing feat of scholarship by the pianist, Alfred Brendel, while Nicholas Slonimsky described it as absorbing in its brilliance. Some of Slater's recent discoveries include previously unknown Mozart documents that have shed light on key issues of Mozart research. A pianist, he studied for many years with Paul Doguereau, the noted exponent of French music who was a pupil of Ravel, Marguerite Long and Paderewski. Slater's piano CD with orchestra, Nightmusic: Mozart, is available on amazon.com. He has just finished Nocturne, a novel of obsession and romance about the life and music of Chopin.
