About the Author

Maynard Solomon's books on Beethoven and his renowned writings on Mozart, Schubert, and Ives led a contributor to Music & Letters to name him "the leading musicologist-biographer of our time." His classic biography, Beethoven, has been translated into seven languages and his Beethoven Essays received the Kinkeldey Award of the American Musicological Society for best book of the year in 1989. Mr. Solomon, who lives in New York, has taught at Columbia, Harvard, and Yale Universities.


"Brilliant." -- New York Times Book Review"Clearly the Mozart biography for our time." -- Robert L. Marshall, Brandeis University"I do not know a musician's biography as satisfying and as moving as this one." -- Edward W. Said, New Yorker"Maynard Solomon writes with the grace of a novelist, the insight of a philosopher, and the precision of a detective. We come to know Mozart personally, as a musical genius, but more than that, as a living, breathing, thinking person." -- Yo-Yo Ma"This biography is a compelling read, like a good novel. . . . Every facet of Mozart's life is here. . . . You may even weep, as I did, as you read this affecting account of his last days." -- John Amis, The Times (London)"Maynard Solomon, in his extraordinary new study, Mozart: A Life, has gone much further than any of his predecessors in humanizing his subject. . . . A far more realistic Mozart of flesh and blood, where musical mastery was not a gift of the gods but the life's work of a man." -- Michael Walsh, Time magazine
