To celebrate the 225th anniversary of Mozart’s death, Classic FM is proud to present Mozart: the Man Revealed, written by our very own John Suchet.

Blending traditional and contemporary musical elements, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was a genius composer from the age of six. His experimental and varied style remains influential - with his twenty-four timeless operas still being performed today - but the story behind the composer is impossible to comprehend.

John Suchet Mozart: The Man RevealedWe all know Mozart as the man who inspired Beethoven, the man who composed over 600 pieces, and as someone larger than life. Over the years our perception of Mozart has been clouded as generations reinvent the composer. Mozart: The Man Revealed sets the story straight.

Delve into the fascinating life story of one of the world’s greatest composers – born in Austria, with a tyrant of a father who drove him relentlessly, an unhappy marriage to a spendthrift woman, a child-like character ill at ease amid the pomp and aristocratic splendour of the Viennese court, and an early death, which robbed the world of its most instinctive musical genius; best-selling author John Suchet presents the composer as he has never been seen before.

The comprehensive single-volume biography of Mozart, vividly brings to life the man himself, his influences, achievements and the glittering milieu of the Habsburg empire in eighteenth-century Europe. Fully illustrated with archive images as well as contemporary photography from the author’s own research, here is your chance to read about one of the greatest musicians of all time in a new light.

225 years after his death, it’s time to reveal Mozart in all his glory. Read the book and be enlightened.
