This book cannot be faulted for the amount of detail about Mozart it is very densely packed with information It is divided into four parts with the third part a bizarrely positioned musical section My book group unanimously skipped part three it would have been better as an appendix The author's writing was also a little jarring various characters 'actually' did this and that and at one point Mozart and his wife 'peeled off' to a destination while on a journey Nevertheless a fascinating read

Mozart’s Women His Family His Friends His Music was written by accomplished Mozart conductor Jane Glover It was published in 2007 and is 372 pages In it Glover tells the story of the oft written about musical prodigy Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in relation to the women in his family the women who inspired him and the women who loved him The biography is divided into four sections “Mozart’s Family” “Mozart’s Other Family” “Mozart’s Women” and “After Mozart” The first two sections present a complete biography of his life beginning with an account of the travels of the child prodigy Mozart his sister almost his eual in talent and his parents His father Leopold is painted as a domineering motivated and dour man; but what is most interesting in the early section of the biography is Glover’s assertion that Mozart’s sister Nannerl might have rivaled her brother in talent if she had been given the opportunities that he had been given It appears that the siblings did have a very close and supportive relationship with one another until Mozart in his need to break from his father went out on his own The next section “Mozart’s Other Family” deals with his relationship with the Weber family The Weber’s had four immensely talented daughters and reminded him of his own family Mozart’s first Weber love was the great opera singer Aloysia but some years after she rejected him he fell in love with and married her younger sister Constanze Constanze and Wolfgang’s marriage would grow to one of great devotion and her love for Mozart would inspire some of his best works This section concludes with the early and untimely death of Mozart while he worked tirelessly ironically on his Reuiem Mass The third section of the biography diverges from the linear movement of the book and digresses into a fascinating detailed explanation of each of Mozart’s operas and the women who inspired and performed them The final section of the book tells about the rest of Constanze’s life and the lives of her sisters and Mozart’s own sister I loved this book It was an independent bookstore treasure that I stumbled upon at the Hard Bean in Annapolis I was drawn to it by the title and by my own interest in the composer My father’s love of classical music and specifically Mozart seeped into my subconscious as I grew and asserted itself several years ago I remember falling in love with Mozart’s music when I saw the movie Amadeus over a decade ago The balance of music and story in the movie was captivating and inspiring and might be what started my true love of historical fictionThough Glover is profoundly learned the text of the book is readable and straightforward Her love for the composer is transmitted in a clean warmness of style Though her affinity for Mozart is clear she does not put him on a pedestal but creates a very human portrayal of a great master I had some difficulty with the third section that broke down his operas in such detail I would have preferred it to be woven through the linear biography for balance but that certainly did not take away from my enjoyment of the text I highly recommend this book
