„Weil jede Note zählt“ (“Because Every Note Counts”) – this is the credo regarding interpretation which Alfred Brendel formulates in this book. It is an invitation to reflect about how to deal with Mozart’s music, about what we generally call „interpretation“ and what has undergone fundamental changes again and again in the course of the last 100 years.

Famous Mozart interpreters and world-renowned musicologists share their experiences and insights in conversations and essays: What did it mean and what does it mean to perform Mozart?

From the contents:
- How does Mozart compose? About his scores and compositional procedures
- Why spontaneity and risk are so important: on performance practice
- Mozart’s theatre of diversity: questions about the human existence on stage
- From Richard Strauss to Nikolaus Harnoncourt: on the artistic physiognomy of great Mozart conductors
- How did composers of the 20th century respond to Mozart?
- Music festival history is German history: a documentary on the Mozartfest Würzburg
