What was Mozart really like? Was he "an immaculate and infinitely good man", as his admirer Tchaikovsky believed? Or did he possess "the demonic spirit of his genius in violence", as Goethe murmured? This audio biography does not set out to solve the riddle. But Mozart, embodied by Viennese actor Florian Teichmeister, comes alive through his thoughts and feelings, his everyday life and his epoch - strictly according to original sources. The four CD edition lets the listener experience the unbelievable path of Mozart's artistic development. Narrated by Udo Wachtveitl, the text is by Jörg Handstein, whose previous works include audio biographies of Mahler, Wagner and Verdi in the BR-KLASSIK WISSEN series. The audio biography is supplemented by legendary recordings of two Mozart piano concertos: the 1973 recording of Piano Concerto No. 18 in B flat major, K. 456, played by Martha Argerich with the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, conducted by Eugen Jochum. The Piano Concerto No. 23 in A major, K. 488, played by Daniel Barenboim under the baton of Rafael Kubelík, is a legendary recording from 1970.
