Mozart's life in letters

The importance of letters to the gregarious Wolfgang and the parallels to be found with his musical writing

Jane Glover [Times Literary Supplement, 14 November 2007]

Mozart learned much of his letter-writing technique from his father. Throughout his childhood, on various lengthy travels across Europe, he observed Leopold writing accounts of their activities and sending them back to Salzburg, first to his friend and landlord Lorenz Hagenauer, and later to his wife Maria Anna, when she and their daughter Nannerl were left at home; to many letters, the growing boy would add postscripts.
