The Pegasus Pocket Guide to MozartUser Review - Book Verdict
Among the crowd of Mozart biographies published for the 250th anniversary of his birth last year, this small but eminently usable guide delivers the most bang for the buck. In the two most substantial and useful sections, Kenyon (director of classical music, BBC; music critic,The New Yorker ) provides a year-by-year chronology and organizes Mozart's entire output by genre, with a discussion of the salient works in each and a selective discography. Kenyon includes poetry about Mozart and annotated lists of Mozart's singers, patrons, and contemporary composers-excellent additions that are not often found in conventional biographies. Kenyon's deft prose and scholarly acumen are apparent, while his tone remains informal and conversational; there are no examples in musical notation or any cryptic analyses of the music. Given its size, price, and intended audience, this book cannot compete with the detailed biographies by Stanley Sadie (Mozart: The Early Years, 1756-1781 ) and Herman Abert (W.A. Mozart ) or the midsize, scholarly guides by Simon P. Keefe (The Cambridge Companion to Mozart ) and Julian Rushton (Mozart ). However, as a low-cost, popular guide this is a true gem. Recommended for all collections.-Larry Lipkis, Moravian Coll., Bethlehem, PA
