Along with his contemporaries Haydn and Beethoven, he is one of the composers who brought the Viennese Classical style to its height. His mature music, distinguished by its melodic beauty, formal perfection and richness of harmony is rooted in both Austrian and German traditions. He is widely regarded as the most universal composer in the history of Western music. In addition to a detailed view of Mozart's life and works, this book includes comprehensive, tabular work-lists and a fully revised and updated bibliography.
