Once again Christian Jacq writes a masterpiece. Wonderful story-telling!
This story revolves around the last days of Mozart's life,
the French revolution and its impact, the freemasonry of the times and
the beauty of Mozart's music.
This book is a gem.
Unfortunately, this book also deals with the last days of Mozart.
It is beautiful in its telling. So many truths and unanswered questions.
It is an unfortunate and sad time for Mozart but there are
also many wonderful highlights with his friendships, his
wife, Constance, his children and his dog, Gaukerl.
Mozart's opera, The Magic Flute, is the culmination of
many years of enlightenment.
He composed beautiful music
which was serene and enduring for clarinet
and horn. He also composed string quartets.
He had been composing dances
for the Viennese people who liked to enjoy themselves
and dance, especially in the week-ends.
The music of Mozart endures today
and it is wonderful to read a book which gives inspiration
and shows the courage and beauty of the musician.
The book is spiritual, beautiful, truthful and gives such wonderful
insights into the dramas of the times.
A book well recommended for people who love the music of Mozart!
