Abstract

Fredman, M. From Idomeneo to Die Zauberflöte: A conductor’s Commentary on the Operas of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. (Brighton: Sussex Academic Press, 2002) 205p. [Book] 1-903900-10-7. Research background: The mature operas of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart continue to form a large proportion of the core repertoire of modern-day opera companies. Research contribution: This is the first book by an experienced conductor to explore Mozart’s mature operatic works from the perspective of the opera pit. It contains a wealth of practical and anecdotal knowledge, of value not just to aspiring conductors but also scholars of Mozart’s operas who wish to understand them more completely as works of art which live ultimately in performance. Research Significance: Published by UK-based academic press Sussex Academic in 2002.
