Review

'A vivid and convincing portrayal with an intriguing new hypothesis about Mozart's final resting place.' -- Saturday Guardian, 7th January 2006 - Rachel Hore

'Alison Bauld weaves a compelling tale to create an extraordinarily accomplished first novel...a veritable tour de force. Best Buy.' -- Classic FM Magazine, December 2005 - Julian Haylock

'Bauld writes with a lyrical delicacy but robust strains of earthy reality make her characters come alive on the page.' -- Chatshow.net - Roz

'Mozart's Sister is a brilliantly constructed debut novel with a wealth of additional facts as an index...I loved it!' -- Musical Opinion, November-December 2005 - Judith Monk

'That rare phenomenon, a book that's hugely enjoyable for the general reader and essential reading for scholars...I was enthralled.' -- Classic FM Radio Broadcast, december 2005 - Chris Powling

From the Publisher

This is not a book constrained by academic literality but is a passionate act of empathy by a contemporary composer who studied with the pioneering Elisabeth Lutyens. Like her teacher, A. M. Bauld is convinced that gender and sexual identy should not be an issue in judging degrees of musical creativity while acknowledging it has been in the past. Bauld's novel is an imaginative and sympathetic account of an eighteenth century heroine who wanted to compose in her own right, although none of Nannerl Mozart's compositions survive. This interpretation is informed by the author's own life as a composer in the 21st century and includes one of her own compositions in homage to Mozart's sister.
