Prague is the second city after Salzburg to be inseparably linked with the name of Mozart. Here in the Bohemian capital he enjoyed his greatest moments of triumph, here even the ballad mongers and guttersnipes took to the arias of his operas, whereas the audiences of imperial Vienna looked down their distinguished noses on his music. Herr Kapellmeister Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart graced Prague with his presence on five occasions, and it is a rewarding pleasure to trace his footsteps, to be transported into a Prague, in which night watchmen still extinguished the street lanterns and brave officers collected bridge tolls. This musical companion brings the bygone days of the Rococo period back to life and resounds with the music of the late 18th century, more than that, however, it guides the reader to all the Mozart sites in Prague and introduces the contemporaries that the great composer met.
