Publisher Description

Born in Austria in 1756, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart composed his first piece of music, a minuet, when he was just five years old! Soon after, he was performing for kings and emperors. Although he died at the young age of thirty-five, Mozart left a legacy of more than 600 works. This fascinating biography charts the musician's extraordinary career and personal life while painting a vivid cultural history of eighteenth-century Europe. Black-and-white illustrations on every spread explore such topics as the history of opera and the evolution of musical instruments. There is also a timeline and a bibliography.

Illustrated by Carrie Robbins.

It's amazing!!! His lifetime is incredible. I play piano and I think I'm no where close to him. He has done so much and all of that stuff is, I don't know it's just so amazing. I loved the book so much!

Mozart

This is a lovely biography on Mozart. I thought the story was very moving on the story of the ups and downs of his life. The illustrations were clever too! I recommend it to anyone, anywhere!

Thank you for reading!
