    Few things in life are more satisfying than beating a rival. We love to win and hate to lose, whether it's on the playing field or at the ballot box, in the office or in the classroom. In this bold new look at human behavior, award-winning journalist and Olympian Matthew Syed explores the truth about our competitive nature: why we win, why we don't, and how we really play the game of life.

    Even from the perspective of time, it is nearly impossible to grasp the full contribution made to music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in his brief and glorious life. He composed his first symphony at the age of 8 and reached full artistic maturity by the time he was only 20. And when he died at the age of 35, he left a legacy of more than 600 works of brilliance - symphonies, chamber music, operas, and more - most composed during an incredibly productive 20-year period.

    On May 27, 1784, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart met a flirtatious little starling in a Viennese shop who sang an improvised version of the theme from his Piano Concerto no. 17 in G major. Sensing a kindred spirit in the plucky young bird, Mozart bought him and took him home to be a family pet. For three years the starling lived with Mozart, influencing his work and serving as his companion, distraction, consolation, and muse.

    When Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart died in 1791 at the age of just 35, he nonetheless left behind the defining composition in every available musical genre of his time: symphony, chamber music, masses, and above all - opera. Opera was the prestige genre of the era, and the thought of it, Mozart wrote, made him, "beside myself at once." It was a form he loved dearly, depending on it heavily for personal, professional, artistic, and financial reasons of the greatest weight.

    Nowhere is Mozart's maturity and mastery more apparent than in the chamber music he wrote during the last 10 years of his life. These 16 lectures take you deep inside the structure of Mozart's chamber masterworks to reveal his hand at work. This is an amazing opportunity to hear, study, and enjoy a selection of immortal musical compositions that Professor Greenberg calls "a blessing of inconceivable richness". You will learn the basic "language" that all 18th-century composers used to write Classical music. You'll also explore the subtleties of Mozart's technique as a composer: his ability to make art "artless".

    Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's name remains synonymous with genius, but his life was a whirlwind of controversy, jealousy, and clashing egos. In this highly enjoyable biography, Alexander Kennedy vividly brings Mozart and his times to life. We watch Mozart clash with family and friends, with archbishops and emperors, and we feel again the tragedy of his mysterious, premature death. And above all, we hear his eternal music, music that captivated a continent, defined a genre, and changed the world.

    Ein ungesühntes Verbrechen, ein Mord und die Wette mit einem Toten. Es gibt nichts, wovor Don Giovanni zurückschrecken würde. Der junge Edelmann fürchtet sich nicht einmal dann, als ein steinernes Denkmal von seinem Sockel heruntersteigt, um ihn mit sich in die Hölle zu nehmen. Was für ein Opernstoff! Und doch fühlt sich Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart so gar nicht wohl, als er im März 1787 mit der Komposition beginnt. Es geschehen merkwürdige Dinge.

    Es ist eine Melodie, die wir alle im Ohr haben. Sie beginnt mit einem einfachen Dreiklang und ist einer der größten Hits unserer Musikgeschichte. So leicht und unbeschwert dieses Thema auch sein mag, hinter dessen Heiterkeit steckt jedoch ein düsteres Geheimnis. Unsere Geschichte beginnt während des Wiener Faschings im Jahr 1787. Eines Abends macht Mozart die Bekanntschaft eines maskierten Mannes. Der rätselhafte Mann weiß um eine besondere Leidenschaft Mozarts: das Billard-Spiel.

    Probably the most naturally gifted musician the world has ever known, Mozart began his career early as a child prodigy. By the age five, he was already proficient on the violin, the harpsichord, and piano keyboard, and had begun composing music that had integrity. He was a showman as well, according to contemporary documents, and charmed many of the crowned heads of Europe with his performance and his manner.

    Music plays a hugely important role in our emotional, intellectual, and even physical lives. It impacts the ways we work, relax, behave, and feel. It can make us smile or cry, it helps us bond with the people around us, and it even has the power to alleviate a range of medical conditions. The songs you love (and hate, and even the ones you feel pretty neutral about) don't just make up the soundtrack to your life - they actually help to shape it.

    Why does music affect you so profoundly? It impacts the way you think, talk, feel, behave and even spend money. With his conversational style, humour, and endless knowledge, scientist and musician John Powell showcases fascinating studies - for example, that shoppers spend more money in stores that play classical music, and, even more astounding, they are more likely to buy German wine in stores playing German music.

    Così Fan Tutte contains some of Mozart’s most sublime music. On one level, the opera is purely a social anecdote about young people falling in and out of love; but Mozart was a supreme sensualist and a great humanist, and invested the tale with all his understanding of humanity and young love. In this title, David Timson refutes the charge that Mozart squandered his genius on a work full of trivial nonsense and proves this "miraculous yet problematic" opera to be a great work of theatre. To listen to this thought-provoking examination of the characters and the music is both thoroughly enriching and great fun.

    Many opera-lovers would name The Marriage of Figaro as their favorite opera. It appeals to the most intellectual listener, but also to music-lovers seeking great melodies and ensembles (while it remains accessible through its fascinating plot and memorable characters) and to those seeking only entertainment. One of three operas by Mozart to libretti by Lorenzo da Ponte, it represents one of the pinnacles not just of operatic but of human achievement.
