Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Zaslaw has gathered a marvelous collection of program note-length essays for all 801 of Mozart's works. Some of the material has been adapted from record jackets, concert programs, and other sources by a number of writers, and some newly written. The compositons are divided into chapters according to type (e.g., Masonic Music; Dances), and the editors have added short overviews at the beginnings of each section. Through careful selection and good editing the essays are interesting, informative, and eminently readable, while avoiding technical jargon. An excellent companion for the bicentennial of Mozart's death this year.-- Timothy J. McGee, Univ. of Toronto
