Mozart's Women Summary


<p>Mozart was fascinated, amused, aroused, hurt, and betrayed by women. He loved and respected them, composed for them, performed with them. This unique biography looks at his interaction with each, starting with his family (his mother, Maria Anna and beloved and talented sister, Nannerl), and his marriage (which brought his 'other family', the Weber sisters). His relationships with his artists are examined, in particular those of his operas, through whose characters Mozart gave voice to the emotions of women who were, like his entire female acquaintance, restrained by the conventions and structures of eighteenth-century society. This is their story as well as his -- and shows once again that a great part of the composer's genius was in his understanding and musical expression of human nature. Evocative and beautifully written, <i>Mozart's Women</i> illuminates the music, the man, and above all the women who inspired him.</p><p> 'Jane Glover has pulled off a coup des livres with her fresh take on Mozart's life and work'<i> Sunday Telegraph</i></p><p> `Readable, informative and moving...Her passion for the music shines through this touching, vividly told story' <i>Sunday Times</i></p>
