內容簡介

適逢莫札特215歲冥誕,快來重溫這個時代最好的莫札特傳記。

大部分的人對莫札特的第一印象大概都是「音樂神童」,很多莫札特傳也從這樣的角度切入。但Maynard Solomon卻不這麼做,在這本數十年來最全面的傳記中,他細細描繪一個在父親陰影下成長的孩子如何成長,如何面對父親對他過度的保護還有忌妒的心理,對於兩人的關係有很多心理的刻畫。他筆下的這個男人,晚年必須向人乞討,對妻子滿懷愧疚,對於父親充滿怨恨,但同時仍然創作出許多了不起的音樂傑作。書中的莫札特極其敏感細膩、開明、鋪張但又充滿責任心,是一個有血有肉的人。本書細膩豐富,讓人思考、讓人心緒起伏──就像莫札特的音樂一樣。

本書作者Maynard Solomon著有貝多芬傳記,並且替莫札特、舒伯特、艾伍士等音樂家寫了許多文章,《Music & Letters》期刊譽其為「這個時代最好的音樂家傳記作者」。他的經典作品《Beethoven》已翻譯為七國語言,而他的《Beethoven Essays》則獲得美國音樂學學會1989年年度好書的肯定。他曾於哥倫比亞、哈佛、耶魯等大學任教。
 

“Most satisfying . . . A highly accessible initial foray into an astonishing, and inexhaustible, subject.” —The Cleveland Plain Dealer

Mozart’s music has enthralled listeners for centuries. In this brilliant biography, acclaimed historian Paul Johnson draws upon his expert knowledge of the era and Mozart’s own private letters to conjure Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s life and times in rich detail. Johnson charts Mozart’s life from age three through to his later years—when he penned The Marriage of Figaro and Don Giovanni. Along the way, Johnson challenges some of the popular myths that cloud Mozart’s image: his allegedly tempestuous personal relationships and supposedly bitter rivalry with Salieri, as well as the notion that he was desperately impoverished when he died. The result—a bold, invigorating portrait of one of the most popular and influential composers of all time—is a welcome addition to Johnson’s extraordinary body of work and makes a perfect gift for classical music lovers and fans of biographies.
