The beloved British voice actor David Case delivers a marvelous performance of The Life of Mozart by Edward Holmes, an English musicologist and critic who attended school with the poet John Keats. Case elevates every word he speaks; it is a joy to listen to him read this monumental 1845 biography about the Classical era composer. Drawing on Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s personal correspondence and papers, Holmes outlines the maestro’s path to becoming a genius, and discusses the impact he has on music.
In this biography, written long before the significance of Mozart's work was fully realized, Holmes reveals the musician's character and genius, his struggles, his influence on art, and the brilliant reputations that surrounded him.

Exceptional review of Mozart's life
This is the most comprehensive account of Mozart, in terms of research and citation of correspondence regarding Mozart. This book is very enjoyable, and I may even listen to it again. If you are interested in Mozart, this book is a must!

Mozart for the Cognoscenti
David Case reads (beautifully, as always) this most-interesting biography of Mozart, written not long after his death in the early 1800s. The style of writing is florid by today’s standards, but the material is fascinating.
