Publisher's Summary

Although best known as a lyrical poet, Mörike's brilliant novella about Mozart is one of the most penetrating and revealing studies of the great composer's personality ever written. The story is a work of fiction based on Mozart's actual journey in the fall of 1787 from Vienna to Prague, where he was to stage his new opera Don Giovanni. Mörike takes this historic event and has Mozart and his wife, Konstanze, spend some time during their journey in the company of the fictional family of a certain Count von Schinzberg.

As this charming tale unfolds, we understand how Mozart's creative processes worked, the reasons for his financial problems, and his heartfelt generosity. The story ends with Mozart's own premonitions of an early death.
