Recensioner i media

"A high-minded and learned study conveying new insight into Mozart's life and creative processes, and into how he fitted socially and professionally into the framework of his time." Classical Music "Elias is insightful about the transition from craftsman's art to artist's art and the reasons for the change in the social situation of artists. He buttresses his arguments with appropriate historical comparisons." Contemporary Sociology "Elias ... has increased and enlarged our understanding not only of Mozart but of the artist in society, making us more receptive to and understanding of artistic innovation. A rewarding study in the sociology of genius." The Semantic Review "Freed from jargon (whether sociological or post-Freudian), there are charming passages where Elias exhibits a certain flair for storytelling.' Austrian History Yearbook 'The book is a delight to read, and a very valuable contribution to the literature of Mozart specifically and of artistic creativity in general." Free Life "It does merit serious attention, particularly (but not only) by those who are principally interested in erecting (or resurrecting) an appropriate cultural context for Mozart's extraordinary achievement." The Music Review
