In Experiencing Mozart: A Listener's Companion, music historian David Schroeder illustrates through the great composer's music how the issues he cared about so deeply in his time remain as pressing to modern listeners. Analysis of Mozart's views on politics, women, authority, and religion sit side by side with compelling walk-throughs of selected great symphonies and sonatas, moving concertos and innovative keyboard works, and his ground-breaking operas. Schroeder merges his vast knowledge of Mozart's personal and professional life, late 18th-century European culture and society, and remarkable musicianship to guide listeners in the art of listening to Mozart.
David Schroeder is professor emeritus at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. His previous books include Haydn and the Enlightenment, Mozart in Revolt: Strategies of Resistance, Mischief and Deception, Our Schubert: His Enduring Legacy, and Hitchcock's Ear: Music and the Director's Art.
