Summary
Experiencing Mozart sets out to make his music as accessible as possible to a larger audience. A carefully selected set of topics and key works from the many genres in which he wrote shows the great composer at work in his 18th-century environment. Schroeder brings together Mozart's views on politics, women, authority, and religion with his great symphonies, ground-breaking operas, and beautiful sonatas to illustrate not only how Mozart's contemporaries saw his music but what tools we need to fully appreciate it in our own time.</span
