About Mozart’s Wife:
Giddy sugarplum or calculating bitch? Pretty Konstanze arounsed strong feelings among her contemporaries. Her in-laws loathed her. Mozart’s friends, more than forty years after his death remained eager to gossip about her “failures as wife to the world’s first superstar. Maturing from child to wife to hard-headed widow, Konstanze would pay Mozart’s Debts, provide for their children and relentlessly market and mythologize her brilliant husband.
Mozart’s letters attest to his affection for Konstanze as well as to their powerful sexual bond. Nevertheless, prominent among the mysteries surrounding the composer’s untimely death: why did his “best beloved” Konstanze never mark his grave?
“…Mozart’s Wife by Juliet Waldron is a richly textured and painstakingly researched trip into the eighteenth century. Waldron’s prose is clean, infinitely readable. She develops her characters brilliantly and without sentimentality. The overriding sense is that of *the real*: Stanzi Mozart is voluptuous, spirited, and wretched by turns. What is life lived in the shadow of a genius? Exaltation, poverty, at times madness…” ~~ K. A. Corlett, Amazon Reader
