Mozart's enduring popularity, among music lovers as a composer and among music historians as a subject for continued study, lies at the heart of The Cambridge Mozart Encyclopedia. This reference book functions both as a starting point for information on specific works, people, places and concepts as well as a summation of current thinking about Mozart. The extended articles on genres reflect the latest in scholarship and new ways of thinking about the works while the articles on people and places provide a historical framework, as well as interpretation. The book also includes a series of thematic articles that cast a wide net over the eighteenth century and Mozart's relationship to it: these include Austria, Germany, aesthetics, travel, Enlightenment, Mozart as a reader, and contemporaneous medicine, among others. Many of the topics covered have never been written about before in English-language Mozart publications or in such detail, and represent today's greater interest in previously unexplored aspects of Mozart's life, context and reception. The worklist provides the most up-to-date account in English of the authenticity and chronology of Mozart's compositions.

  • Comprehensive coverage of Mozart’s life and works, and of the people, places and compositional contexts that directly affected him
  • Broad appeal to music lovers, students and scholars alike
  • Up-to-date scholarship presented in a user-friendly fashion, traversing the entire spectrum of research on the composer
