Overview

The English translation is finally available! Mozart The Fall of the Gods is an editorial success that has revolutionized the way of thinking about Mozart. A bestseller in Italy, the subject of study at university, this book was adopted in the courses of Music Conservatories and it was the topic of discussion for 24 episodes on Vatican Radio. It collects the results of the various research on 18th-century music and Mozart, revered as a god for over two centuries. The authors asked themselves the reasons for that cult, and they removed the many clichés from biographies, such as the one of the genius of nature. Until the last century, the trend was to minimize problems, so as not to disturb the image impressed on the public's mind. This work, divided into two parts, identifies some contradictory points of the immense Mozartian bibliography, verifies and analyses them. It reports the sources of each of the almost 2000 citations, to allow the reader to verify them. Mozart The Fall of the Gods is a Copernican revolution that has upset the musical world.
