Description
Information
Mozart and his charming young wife Constanza are en route to Prague for the opening of Don Giovanni when the composer absent-mindedly wanders into the garden of a noble Bohemian family and finds himself the unwitting guest of honour at their daughter's wedding.

This delightfully high-spirited novella paints an unforgettable picture of Mozart's creative genius - its playful heights and its terrible depths. Morike's own lyrical powers are also displayed in his poetry, and this selection includes his most popular romantic and classical folk and fairy-tale poems, among them the comic idyll 'The Auld Weathercock'.

The only dual-language version of the poetry available in paperback, this volume also includes an appendix on Morike and Hugo Wolf, who set Morike's poems to music.
