About the Author

Simon P. Keefe is James Rossiter Hoyle Chair of Music at the University of Sheffield. He is the author of three books on Mozart, including Mozart's Requiem: Reception, Work, Completion (Cambridge, 2012), which won the 2013 Marjorie Weston Emerson Award. He is also the editor of six volumes for Cambridge University Press, including Mozart Studies (2006) and Mozart Studies 2 (2015), and is general editor of the Royal Musical Association monographs series. In 2005 he was elected a life member of the Academy for Mozart Research at the International Mozart Foundation in Salzburg.


Advance praise: 'An authoritative, richly annotated volume by a leading Mozart scholar that offers a comprehensive survey of the composer's life and music in the last ten years of his life. The integration of these two aspects is a signal achievement: a life in music, rather than a life alongside the music. The volume will be an accessible point of reference for years to come.' David Wyn Jones, Cardiff University
Advance praise: 'Simon P. Keefe is one of our greatest experts on Mozart's life and on his music. In Keefe's new book he weaves the two together into an extended narrative showing the many connections between the two. His graceful prose makes this admirable book accessible to anyone - whether beginner, experienced amateur, or professional - who is interested in gaining a fuller understanding of Mozart the man and the conditions under which he produced his extraordinary music.' Neal Zaslaw, Cornell University
