Mozart is known far and wild as the child prodigy who gave us hundreds of sonatas, orchestras, and operas. In this book we meet him during his earliest performing days and follow him as he begins composing for a living.
This book is divided into two sections – the first fifteen pages tell us about Mozart himself, and the last eight tell us how we can find out more about him and listen to his music.
On page 13 Mozart’s Magic Flute is mentioned and is accompanied by an illustration of a woman dressed in all black wearing a spiky crown and scepter and looking generally occultic.
Conclusion. Not overly informative – would function equally as well as a beginning reader or read aloud.
