An amazing biography of a musical genius. Wolfgang Mozart's immediate family consisted of his domineering autocratic father, Leopold, his mother, Maria Anna, and his talented older sister, Maria Anna AKA Nannerl. Leopold was a ranking musician in the Archbishopric Court in Salzberg and taught his children. In their preteen and early teen years the two children performed for many of the courts in Europe and many of Wolfgang's earlier compositions were written with her in mind. Unfortunately, as Nannerl reached her later teens she was shunted aside in many respects.
Other women became part of Wolfgang's life, especially the Weber sisters for whom her wrote several pieces. First falling in love with Aloysia, the eldest, apparently mutual at first but she ignored him after he was absent for several months. Constanze, a younger sister became his bride and eventually his oft maligned widow. However, it is she that really made sure his works were not forgotten.
There is a rather long section called "Mozart's Women" that is mainly about his music and the female characters he portrayed and the women that played those parts. Mozart's real genius was in writing the music for the singer because he knew their abilities. Sometimes he would re-write the music for different performances because the cast was different.
Many of Mozart's operatic works are discussed with the plots being laid out. What I found most interesting in this part was the author's descriptions of Mozart's use of music to mimic and enhance the vocal performance by the casts.
Partially a biography of Mozart, it is also a biography of the women in his life and his relations with them.
