Download Free Mozart's Portrait on a French Box of Sweets PDF by Stefaan Missinne Full Book and published by Hollitzer Wissenschaftsverlag. This book was released on 2021-06-22 with total page 120 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A portrait miniature of a cherubic boy with a wig was discovered in Salzburg in 2018. It is mounted on a bonbonnière made of papier-mâché and tortoiseshell. The provenance of the box of sweets is Paris. Could this be a portrait of W. A. Mozart from Versailles? The detective trail leads to Salzburg, Munich, Paris, and Vienna. Laboratory testing authenticates the painting and the box. Stefaan Missinne discovers the "smoking gun" in the silver frame. The guilloche pattern is the linking orphic attribute. Facial biometrics of the boy confirm it is a ten-year-old. Mozart was ten while in Paris in 1766. The Belgian author endorses the bonbonnière as a unique Louis XV box of sweets, suggesting that it is a tribute to W. A. Mozart as an Austrian child prodigy. "An exceptional finding in a Salzburg antique shop leads, like an international research thriller, from the Mozarteum in Salzburg to the archives of the Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde in Vienna, from the Louvre and the Royal French Court in Paris to the Imperial collections of the Habsburgs. A small, expensive and specially heralded box – the Mozart portrait box – portrays a unique, royally uniformed boyish Mozart as a composer, musician and prodigy. A wonderful artifact that allows us to sense Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart as a young Austrian musical genius. Stefaan Missinne has made a significant discovery with international appeal and world interest." Sir James Constable, Harvard University Fellow "Just as in Greek mythology Orpheus was able to sweep his fellow human beings away with his beguiling song, so the author, Prof. Dr. Stefaan Missinne, succeeds in this compact, scientific treatise where he documents and presents striking evidence of a portrait of the youthful Mozart from Paris, dating from 1766. In so doing, he allows the striking traces and circumstances of a small, collectible, but otherwise inconspicuous artefact to speak to us and form a significant whole that addresses us today in a most meaningful way." Archduke Dr. Michael Salvator Habsburg Lothringen

Download Free Mozart's Starling PDF by Lyanda Lynn Haupt Full Book and published by Hachette UK. This book was released on 2017-06-15 with total page 288 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: On May 27th, 1784, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart met a flirtatious little starling who sang (an improved version of!) the theme from his Piano Concerto Number 17 in G to him. Knowing a kindred spirit when he met one, Mozart wrote "That was wonderful" in his journal and took the bird home to be his pet. For three years Mozart and his family enjoyed the uniquely delightful company of the starling until one April morning when the bird passed away. In 2013, Lyanda Lynn Haupt, author of Crow Planet, rescued her own starling, Carmen, who has become a part of her family. In Mozart's Starling, Haupt explores the unlikely bond between one of history's most controversial characters and one of history's most notoriously disliked birds. Part natural history, part story, Mozart's Starling will delight readers as they learn about language, music, and the secret world of starlings.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: “It might be the best book on animals I’ve ever read. It's also the only one that's made me laugh out loud.” —Helen Macdonald, The New York Times Book Review Beginning with Yuka, a 39,000-year-old mummified woolly mammoth recently found in the Siberian permafrost, each of the sixteen essays in Animals Strike Curious Poses investigates a different famous animal named and immortalized by humans. Modeled loosely after a medieval bestiary, these witty, playful, whip-smart essays, from a winner of a Whiting Award for nonfiction, traverse history, myth, science, and more, bringing each beast vibrantly to life. “Stunning . . . Passarello’s keen wit is on display throughout as she raises questions about the uniqueness of humans. . . . A feast of surprising juxtapositions and gorgeous prose.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) “I’ve spent decades reading books on the roles animals play in human cultures, but none have ever made me think, and feel, as much as this one. It’s a devastating meditation on our relationship to the natural world.” —Helen Macdonald, The New York Times Book Review

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: One of the great poetic masterpieces of the past century, exquisitely translated from the Swedish. Winner of the 2006 Nordic Council’s Literature Prize, Swedish writer Göran Sonnevi is undoubtedly one of the most important poets working today. In Mozart’s Third Brain, his thirteenth book of verse, he attempts “a commentary on everything” – politics, current events, mathematics, love, ethics, music, philosophy, nature. Through the impeccable skill of award-winning translator Rika Lesser, Sonnevi’s long-form poem comes to life in English with the full force of its loose, fractured, and radiating intensity. A poetic tour de force that darts about dynamically and imaginatively, Mozart’s Third Brain weaves an elaborate web of associations as the poet tries to integrate his private consciousness with the world around him. Through Lesser’s translation and preface, and an enlightening foreword by Rosanna Warren, readers of English will finally gain access to this masterpiece.

Download Free Mozart's Death PDF by William Stafford Full Book and published by Springer. This book was released on 1991-10-23 with total page 285 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: There is a macabre fascination in the spectacle of one so brilliant, dying so young, in such tragic circumstances. Was Mozart poisoned? Was he irresponsible and childish, dying from debauchery and dissipation? Did his wife contribute to his downfall? Was he driven to destruction by being ostracised as a rebel? Did his genius render him incapable of normal human contact and worldly prudence? Did he die because he had accomplished his mission as an artist and burnt himself out? Was he the victim of a run of bad luck? From 1791 to the present such stories have flourished; this book examines their development and the evidence for them.
