Mozart: The Wonder Child
Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgang Gottlieb Mozart was only three years old—not much bigger than his name—when he heard his sister playing the harpsichord and asked if he could play it too. By the time he was six, young Wolfgang had become the toast of Europe, traveling widely, performing for kings and princes. His adult life, turbulent and tragically brief, fulfilled his early promise. In those few, short years the former wonder child wrote his masterpieces, some of the greatest and most beloved music of all time.
Presented as a marionette production, including music young readers can play, this is a wonderful introduction to the life of one of history’s most remarkable musicians.
