Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Though Mozart's letters have been well studied, Penguin here offers a new translation that might bring some new facets of his life and compositions to light. Famous individuals' letters also humanize them, making living, breathing people out of icons.

This review does not reflect on the quality of the actual book.  There is a problem with the electronic version of this book.  I purchased the book for my Nook and it looks like the right book on my the Nook library. When I open the book to read it, however, the text is another book called "The Travels of SIr John Mandeville."  Therefore, it does not appear one can buy this book for a Nook until B & N fixes this issue.
