Mozart And His Operas
David Cairns
Penguin, £20
WOLFGANG Amadeus Mozart was born 250 years ago this month, and a spate of new books marks the anniversary. Given the abundance of new biographies, David Cairns – who won the Whitbread Award for his massive study of Berlioz – opts for a more specialised approach, focusing on Mozart’s operas, which have long been regarded by many as his greatest achievement.
