User Review  - Tom Bouwman - Goodreads

A standard work in Mozartology. Landon is one of the best and well known Mozart-scholars of all time and his book offers a near complete picture of the composer. Verry detailed and well written. Should be on the shelve of every Mozart-lover. Read full review

User Review  - Michael - Goodreads
