    Free eBook · ePub Vienna Nocturne ç Hardcover Vienna NocturneSince I have a background in opera this book was a natural for me Whether or not Anna Storace’s relationship with Mozart progressed to an affair or remained merely friendship is a matter for speculation as are some of the other personal details in the novel However what seemed utterly authentic was the vivid way the author depicted Storace and Mozart’s sense of playfulness and their sheer joy in their music The contrast of the flamboyant singers with the businesslike Salieri or with Emperor Joseph II preoccupied with

    Free eBook · ePub Vienna Nocturne ç Hardcover Vienna NocturneI started reading Vienna Nocturne in January when I received it as an ARC in the hopes that when I finished I would write a review Well here it is six months later because I just now finished I wanted to like Vienna Nocturne In fact I was really excited to receive an ARC because I am a classically trained singer and the book had me at Mozart I was thoroughly expecting to curl up with an engrossing read about opera and forbidden romance in 18th century Vienna and I was sorely disappointed Let's start with what I likeAnna Mozart This is where the book really shined The dynamic and palpable chemistry between the musical genius and his prima buffa is where the magic really lies Some of their scenes were really tender and magical and those were the parts that I felt really engag

    Free eBook · ePub Vienna Nocturne ç Hardcover Vienna NocturneI truly enjoyed this fictionalized story of the life of the Opera singer Anna Storace This author exhibits a true talent for historical fiction with an ability to stick closely to facts that are known about Storace and about Wolfgang Amadeas Mozart even while making the characters come alive and without the stilted “reporting” sense that historical fiction sometimes includes The author blends what is known fact with imagined dialog and intimate relationships that may or may not have developed Luckily Anna's Londoner parents recognized her remarkable singing voice and as a preteen she begins singing lessons; thus begins a journey through the land of opera and takes Anna through the major cities of Europe At the same time that she is widely popular and her sing
