Description: Was Mozart poisoned, the victim of personal, political, or professional intrigue? H.C. Robbins Landon settles the score with this fascinating book. Drawing on a rich variety of new sources, from eyewitness accounts to freshly discovered documents, he lays myth aside for the facts about Mozart’s last year. Taking us virtually month by month through 1791, Landon has written a book for all who love Mozart and his music—one that speaks with the voice of undisputed authority and reads with the drama of a first-rate detective novel.
