Under the imprimatur of Lincoln Center's acclaimed Mostly Mozart Festival, a fresh, accessible guide to the life and works of Mozart Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is one of the world's most popular and accessible classical composers and the focus of Lincoln Center's annual Mostly Mozart Festival. The Festival, often broadcast on PBS's Live from Lincoln Center series, has brought Mozart's music to a national audience for more than 40 years. This book, which is the first in a series of Lincoln Center guides to major composers and genres, is the ideal introduction to Mozart's fascinating life and music. It combines biographical information with an exploration of some of his most important orchestral, chamber, piano, operatic, and choral pieces, including guidance on what to listen for, a discography, and suggestions for building a CD collection. Carl Vigeland (Amherst, MA) has written several books about music, including In Concert: Onstage and Offstage with the Boston Symphony Orchestra (978-0-595-28430-6). He has written for the Atlantic Monthly, Downbeat, the New York Times Sunday Magazine, and Boston magazine, for which he was the classical music columnist.
