Product description


'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.' -- - 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


This wonderful debut novel follows Nannerl Mozart's life through marriage, children, widowhood and death in conversations with her nephew, Franz Xaver, Mozart's younger son. "Intervoven" is a fictional account of what may have happened to Mozart's body. It is a story with subplots ingeniously constructed from the few known facts. The heroine is Nannerl Mozart, the forgotten sister of a genius. As a child she had played for the royal courts of Europe with her brother, yet in adolescence she was left at home in Salzburg with her mother, while her father and Mozart lived in Italy. The father is not portrayed as an ogre, more a parent dedicated to enshrining and marketing his son's talent. The consequences are explored with perception and sympathy for each member and for Nannerl in particular as an eighteenth century female of considerable musical gifts. In 1770, Mozart wrote to his sister from Rome to praise her composition, urging her to send him more. None of her music survives and A. M. Bauld has included one of her own songs in homage. Merdith Oakes, playwright and librettist said "I loved reading "Mozart's Sister" because it carried me far.

It's a living history: it's history appropriated by an informed, engaged, adoring, perceptive and wildly creative mind that responds to the Mozarts' life and music with a life and music of its own."
