My Mozart by Juliet Waldron

My Mozart, a new release from Juliet Waldron, author of the highly acclaimed Mozart's Wife (available in ebook exclusively on Kindle)

Mozart was her teacher, her mentor, her rescuer--and, finally, fatally, her lover...

At dawn, in the marble palace of a Prince, a nine-year-old sings for Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, then at the peak of his career. Always delighted by musical children, he accepts Nanina as a pupil. Gifted, intense and imaginative, she sees the great "Kapellmeister Mozart” as an avatar of Orpheus and her own, personal divinity.

His lessons are irregular and playful, but the teacher/pupil bond grows strong. Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro premieres, and Nanina, now twelve, is given a solo part. For her, this is the beginning of a long stage career. For Mozart, it marks the start of his ruin. His greatest works will be composed in poverty and obscurity.

During the composer’s last summer, his wife has left him. Chronically in debt and suffering the emotional isolation of genius, he takes refuge with his disreputable Volksoper friends, who want him to write a “peasant opera” for their audience. Nanina, now grown, and still in love with Mozart, is among their number. As he seeks solace among the women of the Volksoper, the charms of his young fan become increasingly alluring. No one, least of all the composer, understands the depth of her obsession or how a brief affair will permanently alter her life.


"Bravo, Ms. Waldron. Your talent and knowledge shine on every page."

"My Mozart brings history to life and tells the story beyond the music. Waldron's talent for pulling the reader in and creating a time travel experience is a rare and precious gift."

"Give yourself the gift of "My Mozart," and then buy its companion book, "Mozart's Wife." Both are stories to be read again and again. They're that good."

  5. Thanks everyone who came by and left a message! Ann -- this is the other half of "Mozart's Wife." It's been in "the drawer" for a long time, kind of a secret gift from the heroine to me. Don't think she wanted me to tell, though...

  6. Hi Juliet,
    Sounds like another great Juliet Waldron read. My TBR pile just keeps on getting higher.
