The Treasures of Mozart by John Irving

The Treasures of Mozart pays tribute to Mozart's musical brilliance, covering his life and major works in lavish spreads. Follow Mozart as he takes his first steps as a composer, tours Europe as a child genius, struggles to reconcile his artistic vision with his patrons' demands, and achieves fame but not fortune--tragically dying in poverty at 35 years of age. Ten facsimile documents, including autographed score sheets, letters, notebook extracts, and official decrees, provide fresh insight into this great artist.
