Sold exclusively through iBookstore The Mozart Project is a compendium of 10 chapters, each providing a rich, multimedia experience of a different aspect of Mozart's life and works, curated and authored by some of the foremost writers and scholars in classical music today.
All performances and films were specially commissioned for the iBook 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.
Amongst the many highlights is an exclusive reading of Alexander Puskin'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 artifacts 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.
