Reviews

"A good read from a highly published and interesting thinker who loves Mozart's music."--Journal of Australian Studies

"Philippe Sollers is a mercurial personality and a leading controversial figure on the French literary scene, and his take on Mozart is fresh, lively, witty, and informed. What makes Mysterious Mozart especially interesting is its blend of music criticism, biography, and personal insight."--David Hayman, translator and editor of Philippe Sollers's Writing and the Experience of Limits
"A most intriguing alternative, in content and method, to almost all other recent books on Mozart. Highly recommended."--Choice
"A journey of fanciful discovery. . . . Opinionated and laden with insights."--Opera News
