To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Amazing short biography of the legendary Western Classical Composer. At the age of five, he was able to play three instruments and even compose a music ! Within a short period of his life of 35 years, Mozart composed music which is still performed and enjoyed across world for more than 250 years. A very informative narrative of Mozart's life. Who Was series is indeed very informative and inspirational.
【追記】 古楽の木管奏者である私は、モーツァルトの曲には演奏の上では縁がないな、と本書を読んで寂しく思っていたら、インターネット上の詳細年表を見ていて急に思い出した。 大学の一般教養（芸術選択科目）で気まぐれに合唱を取り、Ave verum Corps（K.618）と、ハ短調ミサ（K.427）を歌ったことがあったのである。K.427はどんな曲か最早、思い出せないが、K.618は日本中、あちこちで耳にする有名な曲である。しかし、簡単な小曲と見えて実は難曲で、この曲をまともに歌える合唱団は、かなり高級と言える。
I bought this book for my son. He has enjoyed it and the book seems right for his age (11). I think a more serious adult might want something a little more in depth but for his uses this is a great learning tool.
Great little book. We buy lots of Who Was books and use them for homeschool enrichment. Short chapters, larger font, and lots of pictures make these books an easy read. This was a great addition to our collection.
