Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, distinguished for his musical genius as a child, produced, in his short lifespan, over 600 compositions that, owing to their tunefulness and clarity of structure, appeal to the musically uneducated and to musical scholars alike. In all his works, whatever emotion he aims at expressing is conveyed with the utmost sensitivity and refinement.

Originally published in 1944 in the author's larger "Encyclopedia of Musical Masterpieces: Music for the Millions," this paperback edition explores and describes dozens of Mozart's greatest works in such genres as Concerto, Mass, Opera, Quartet, Sonata, and Symphony.
