Overview

Mozart

In a theological study of Mozart's music, Kung discusses the composer's Catholic background--something that, surprisingly, has hardly been treated by scholars--and reveals, among other things, the possibility of a new creative understanding of Mozart's "Coronation Mass", as interpretated by Mozart's music. A provocative study that may even surpass Karl Barth's famous work.
