The First Interactive Book on Mozart's life and work ever released
Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about the World’s Most Loved Classical Composer on your i-pad.
Curated and authored by some of the most respected experts, The Mozart Project gives new insight into the life of a musical genius, providing the ultimate experience both in terms of contributors and the carefully selected playlist of music and images that they have chosen to feature throughout the book.
All performances and films were specially commissioned for the book and it includes twenty contributors from across the arts world including Sir Nicholas Hytner, Sir Jonathan Miller, Simon Russell Beale, Dame Felicity Lott, Sir Thomas Allen, Russell Tovey, contemporary eight-year-old prodigy Alma Deutscher, Paul Morley and many others. There is also expert analysis from leading Mozart authorities Cliff Eisen, Neal Zaslaw and John Irving; The Mozart Project provides an immersive experience for all music lovers and, crucially, brings high-quality classical music to the digital arena.
The Mozart Project is designed exclusively for iPad and includes over three hours of music, two hours of streaming video, (filmed performances, demonstrations and short films) four hours of interviews extracts, and seven panel discussions chaired by Paul Morley. It also includes new and exclusive contributions from luminaries across the spectrum of classical music, giving a fascinating insight into Mozart’s life and works.
Amongst the many highlights is an exclusive reading of Alexander Pushkin’s poetic drama Mozart and Salieri, which brings, for the first time, BAFTA award winning Simon Russell Beale as Salieri under the direction of Sir Jonathan Miller and stars HBO and BBC star Russell Tovey as Mozart.
Filmed highlights include performances from acclaimed period instrument group, Ensemble DeNOTE, exclusive access to the Mozart Autograph Vault in Salzburg and a look at the treasured Mozart related artefacts of a descendant of Mozart’s landlord. The Mozart Project also explores areas of controversy and intrigue: Does Pushkin’s diary confirm speculation over the Salieri poisoning? What can Pauli Hagenauer tell us about the Colloredo affair? Dispelling myths, and raising new questions, The Mozart Project casts new light over the life and music of one of the most iconic cultural figures of all time.
