On a cold January night in 1756, a child is born in Salzburg’s Getreidegasse: his name is to become known across the world: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. As a young boy, he delights audiences from among the noble families of Europe; as a grown man in the imperial city of Vienna, he battles for his livelihood as an independent musician and composer – leaving behind an eternal musical treasure house. This book shows us Mozart’s life by means of classical biographies and numerous illustrations, and leads us into a world in which magic flutes and money troubles go hand in hand.
