THE LIFE OF WOLFGANG AMADEUS MOZART
by Perry Keenlyside | Read by Nigel Anthony, Paul Rhys

Talented narrators Nigel Anthony and Paul Rhys work well together in rendering this fascinating look at one of the greatest composers in history. They use their prodigious vocal talents and experience to pull back the curtain on the strained relationship between Mozart and his father and his early success as a composer and performer for the royals of Europe. Using an authoritative tone, they deliver the facts, and the more emotional and evocative passages are presented with increasing tension and excitement. Musical passages add to the listening experience, rounding out this fascinating and fulfilling study. R.O. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine
