Mozart in Prague
Essays on Performance, Patronage, Sources, and Reception
Edited by Kathryn L. Libin

Mozart in Prague cover image

This newly published collection of scholarly essays stems from a joint conference held in Prague in June 2009 by the Mozart Society of America and the Society for Eighteenth-Century Music; it has been co-published by both societies with the Institute of Ethnology of the Czech Academy of Sciences. The purpose of the conference was to examine from diverse points of view the music of Mozart and his contemporaries within the rich cultural context provided by Prague. This volume offers critical discussions of musicians and performance in theatrical, concert, and private settings; of important patrons of music in Bohemia and nearby; of sources and repertoire that deepen our knowledge of contemporary practices in this region; of the extraordinary cross-fertilization between Italy and its Central European counterparts; and of the opera that is perhaps most closely identified with Prague, Don Giovanni, with new perspectives on its sources, structure, and reception.
