Mozart in Love

Mozart in Love

(2012)
(A book in the Maestro series)
A novel by

 
'A bachelor in my view is only half alive.' So writes Wolfgang Mozart to his father in 1781 as he settles in Vienna intent on gaining fame and wealth.

Soon the prolific composer is charming audiences - and also a number of young ladies, most notably the appealing Constanze Weber. But the obstacles in the way of marriage to his beloved seem unsurmountable, and this is only a forerunner of the difficulties which will beset Mozart in his personal life.

For a time success and money are in his grasp. But when the public taste alters and Mozart falls out of favour, he struggles to make his way in the treacherous musical world of Vienna.

Constanze, weakened by five pregnancies, falls ill and the medical bills are huge. Suddenly the lack of money is critical.

And then a mysterious man in black arrives with a request to write a Requiem. The fee is unbelievably generous. Mozart finds himself on the brink of a fortune. But it is too late. The brilliant composer suddenly succumbs to a fever and dies with his Requiem incomplete.

How will Constanze secure the future for herself and her children? What will she do with the partially completed manuscript? Who will finish the magnificent requiem music and sign Mozart's name at the bottom?

This is the true story of Mozart, as revealed in surviving documents and the family letters. It is a story packed with intrigue and passion - and a plot line almost as rich as his music.

Mozart in Love is the first book in The Maestro Series. Although musically themed, they are all stand-alone books written in different genres. The Maestro's Mistress and Death in a Heartbeat will become available on Amazon Kindle over the coming months.
