A delightful little visit to another time, seen through the lens of a German-speaking Mozart afficianado of the last century. I have one of the early editions, complete with lovely drawings of an imaginarily mannered 18th Century. Mozart had a special relationship with 'mein Praguers,' and so any writer who imagines his life will have to create their own version of his travels and experiences on his way to a place where they 'verstehen mich!' ''Understand me!' As Mozart himself declared during the riotous reception Prague gave the premier of his 'Don Giovanni.') A tasty bon-bon of delight for anyone who prefers their Mozart fantasies sweet, but a must for everyone who has got a 'thing' for Mozart.
