Leopold Mozart: how much closer do you want to come?
In 1756, in the year of Wolfgang’s birth, Leopold Mozart, wrote an extensive book on the art of violin playing. His work reached international fame, with several editions and translations. No doubt the later fame of son Amadeus added to the today’s perceived value of the book, but the depth of Leopold’s work is to be compared to other books, like that of C.P.E.Bach on Keyboard, or Quantz on flute traverse. All written in the same period.
