B1728. Janos Liebner. Mozart on the Stage. New York, Praeger, 1972. 254pp. Bibliography; Illus.; DJ.
“An engrossing study of Mozart's operas spanning the whole of the composer's career, from the very early works composed while he was still a child to his last years and the extraordinarily creative period that produced THE MARRIAGE OF FIGARO, DON GIOVANNI, COSI FAN TUTTE and THE MAGIC FLUTE. Liebner leads the reader through the various stages of Mozart's development as a composer for the stage and shows how Mozart moved beyond a sound knowledge of contemporary forms and technique to advance the evolution of operatic technique and achievement."
