Description
Interviewer: "You say how difficult you found it to write fugues, yet you played them extempore, on the spur of the moment?"

W.A. Mozart: "Yes, of course. Then, you get away with things—change key quickly, bring in the main idea—and everyone calls 'Bravo!' But getting everything in place on paper, so it's bearable to repeat, that's another thing. You have to introduce surprises, but in a way that will please. Something that connoisseurs will understand and amateurs like, too ... though they won't know why."

Presented as a comfortable chat between Mozart and a time-traveling interviewer, this compact little book imagines what it would be like to spend and hour or two with the great 18th-century composer over a cup of tea or coffee. The entertaining conversation is purely fictional, yet solidly based on biographical facts.
