Edited by Simon P. Keefe
Part of the Cambridge Companions to Music series
The Cambridge Companion to Mozart paints a rounded yet focussed picture of one of the most revered artists of all time.
Bringing the most recent scholarship into the public arena, this volume bridges the gap between scholarly and popular images of the composer, enhancing the readers' appreciation of Mozart and his extraordinary output, regardless of their prior knowledge of the music.
Part I situates Mozart in the context of late eighteenth-century musical environments and aesthetic trends that played a pivotal role in his artistic development and examines his methods of composition.
Part II surveys Mozart's works in all of the genres in which he excelled and Part III looks at the reception of the composer and his music since his death.
Part IV offers insight into Mozart's career as a performer as well as theoretical and practical perspectives on historically informed performances of his music.
