Overview

Who Was Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart? by Yona Zeldis McDonough, Carrie Robbins

Born in Austria in 1756, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart composed his first piece of music, a minuet, when he was just five years old! Soon after, he was performing for kings and emperors. Although he died at the young age of thirty-five, Mozart left a legacy of more than 600 works. This fascinating biography charts the musician's extraordinary career and personal life while painting a vivid cultural history of eighteenth-century Europe. Black-and-white illustrations on every spread explore such topics as the history of opera and the evolution of musical instruments. There is also a timeline and a bibliography.

Illustrated by Carrie Robbins.

Who Was Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart? by Yona Zeldis McDonough is an incredible book for an equally incredible person. The history of his personal life is fascinating and amazing. A remarkable person that died so young and left us so much. This book details the wonders and times of his life. Over 100 pages and lots of great sketches. Great job.
