Promotional Information

An examination of Mozart's piano sonatas, showing them to be a microcosm of the composer's changing style.


'Irving's book functions in part as a ready reference guide. As well as a rundown on the sources for each sonata, particularly noteworthy for its attention to the evidence provided by ink shadings for Mozart's manner of compsoing, there is some interesting prefatory material that considers possible stylistic models for the Mozart sonatas.' W. Dean Sutcliffe, Times Literary Supplement
