For the Love of Music: The Remarkable Story of Maria Anna Mozart
By Elizabeth Rusch
Illustrated by Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher
Age 5-8 years
By the time she was twelve, she was considered one of the finest pianists in Europe, but today few people know her name.
Maria Anna Mozart, like her famous brother, Wolfgang, was a musical prodigy. The talented siblings toured Europe, playing before kings and empresses, were showered with gifts and favors, and lived in a whirlwind of music and travel. They were best friends, collaborators, and confidantes. So why has Maria been forgotten?
Drawn from actual letters written by the Mozart family, and gloriously illustrated by renowned painters Lou Fancher and Steve Johnson, this is the first book for young readers to explore the life of this incredible woman who was determined to keep playing, for the love of music.
