About the Authors
  • Cultural, historical and reception-related contexts are central to understanding Mozart, one of the greatest and most famous musicians of all time. Widening and refining the lens through which the composer is viewed, the essays in Mozart Studies 2 focus on themes, issues, works and repertories perennially popular among Mozart scholars of all kinds, pointing to areas primed for future study and also suitable for investigation by musicians outside the scholarly community. Following on from the first Mozart Studies volume, internationally renowned contributors bring new perspectives to bear on many of Mozart's most popular works, as well as the composer's letters, biography, and reception. Chapters are grouped according to topics covered and collectively affirm the vitality of Mozart scholarship and the significant role it continues to play in defining and redefining musicological priorities in general.

    • Offers a broad overview of current research into Mozart and his music, opening up numerous avenues for future research
    • Combines traditional scholarship and cutting edge 'new musicological' work, suggesting new directions for the study of Mozart
    • Explores many of Mozart's most popular works, such as the 'Haydn' string quartets and The Marriage of Figaro
