Inhaltsangabe: Our understanding of Mozart's life and music has broadened immensely in recent years. Much new material has come to light, including discoveries of musical sources and fresh ways of interpreting known ones. Studies in the chronology of Mozart's works, his compositional process, his relationship to the world around him these and many other areas have yielded new thinking that has challenged or overturned the inherited wisdom. In "Mozart: The Early Years" renowned music historian Stanley Sadie discusses all aspects of the composer's life and music, relating them to the social, economic, cultural, and musical environments in which he worked. Drawing substantially on family correspondence, Sadie illuminates Mozart's world and his relationships with employers, colleagues, and family. Individual works are discussed in sequence and related to the events of the composer's life."
Review from previous edition Mozartians will respond to this book with the awe it rightfully deserves... the ideal response to this book would be to rush out and buy 50 CDs and to read and listen simultaneously. ( Jane Stevenson, The Observer)
Stanley Sadie brings us closer to the composer's skin; Moazrt: The Early Years 1756-1781 is the most balanced guide to Maozart's youth ever published in English. ( Andrew Clark, Financial Times)
A lasting monument to scholarship ( Lucasta Miller, The Guardian)
A musicological landmark... Sadie has a real flair for elucidation, wears his massive learning lightly, and writes in a style that is unfailingly easy-going and personable. ( The Scotsman)
magisterially detailed book... Sadie's vast book will be essential to serious Mozartians, especially his superb evaluation of the early works. ( Richard Morrison, The Times)
This book is meticulous, solid and useful. ( Rupert Christiansen, Sunday Telegraph)
A new narrative biography for our time. ( Nicholas Kenyon, TLS)
Had he lived to complete it, Stanley Sadie's would probably have been the most exhaustive, and certainly the most level-headed, Mozart biography in English. ( Misha Donat, BBC Music Magazine)
