There’s so much more to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart than just whacky wigs

and wonderful music. He was a social change-maker and groundbreaking artist.

This book offers a peek through the keyhole at Mozart’s world. Not the genius alone

in his ivory tower, but a real man who lived a real life — the cheeky little brother,

the rebellious son, the besotted young lover, the arrogant artist, the despondent

freelancer, the proud father and the doting husband.

In it, you’ll discover the truth behind the legends that surround Mozart. Did he really
have an uncontrollable fear of the trumpet? Was he actually engaged to his sweaty,
overweight piano pupil? And what did he say about Beethoven behind his back?
