Explore the Mystery of the Missing Last Words of Mozart
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Requiem in D Minor has been shrouded in mystery from the very beginning of its creation in November 1791. Commissioned in secrecy, it posed an immediate burden as he struggled in failing health to finish it. “Didn’t I say before that I was writing this Requiem for myself?” the dying musical genius uttered to those gathered at his bedside, shortly before the quill fell from his hand and he died. The legend surrounding Mozart’s Requiem took on a new twist when a corner of the page containing his last words was torn off and stolen at the 1958 Brussels World’s Fair.
In Mozart’s Last Words, Roy Ziegler presents a thrilling story about the pursuit of that missing Requiem fragment on a turbulent race across two continents to recapture it from a Neo-Nazi terrorist group, leading to a baffling conclusion. Available now at Amazon - Barnes & Noble -Xlibris.com.
