I am Mozart, too : the lost genius of Maria Anna Mozart

Image of item
Book

First edition.

Like any older sibling, Nannerl Mozart got to do things first and her younger brother, Wolfgang, wanted to be just like her. She played harpsichord, composed music, and even toured Europe to play concerts. Once Wolfie joined them, and she grew into her teens, her father insisted she stay home and become a wife -- married to a man with no love of music.
"I Am Mozart, Too is a picture book biography about Wolfgang's older sister, Maria Anna Mozart, who was a child prodigy and a secret composer, perfect for Women's History Month. Nannerl and Wolfie love playing the harpsichord together. They are so talented, the Mozart siblings perform all over Europe for packed audiences in beautiful concert halls. Even Empress Maria Theresa requests that they stop in Vienna to play especially for her. But then Nannerl does something naughty: She starts writing music of her own. Papa fumes. Girls are not allowed to compose! Girls belong behind the curtain. While Wolfie's solo career takes flight, Nannerl must settle for a life offstage. But it doesn't stop her from pursuing her dreams in secret. With vivid, sweeping art by Adelina Lirius, author Audrey Ades tells the powerful true story of a talented, ambitious girl who has been hidden from history―a girl who was and always will be a genius, too." --
