I'm a big fan of the author's mystery series set in contemporary Palestine and featuring an aging schoolmaster trying to be a voice of sanity in an insane world. Matt Rees couldn't have ventured farther afield from his traditional stomping grounds for this new work, and yet it worked well enough that I'm interested to see what he tackles next.

Leaving aside the somewhat clunky framing device, the novel starts on a wintry day in a small village outside Salzburg, where Mozart's elder sister has married and settled down to raise five stepchildren and two of her own. But it's 1791, a letter arrives to bring her news of her brother's demise -- and informs here he had insisted he had been poisoned. Nannerl (Anna Maria) immediately sets off to investigate, and is caught up in a whirlwind of plots and counterplots, spies and policemen, Masons and musicians. Was it jealousy, politics or Masonic conspiracy that brought the genius's life to a premature close?

Rees is less skilled at bringing to life the personality of either Nannerl or her sister in law, Constanze, Mozart's widow, than he is in making "real" his Bethlehem-based schoolteacher. (That's a pity, as he clearly has insight into the world of music that he sees her as having relinquished with reluctance and regret.) But he crafts an intriguing, if sometimes over the top, tale that is at least somewhat plausible and certainly a lot of fun to read. And the Viennese settings are fabulous -- from the snowy streets to the Baroque palaces and the classic coffeeshops, Rees has the knack for capturing a sense of place.

This will appeal to fans of historical mysteries, and perhaps to music buffs as well. Don't expect anything genre-defying or ultra-literary; there are plenty of conventional twists and turns in response to which I occasionally found myself rolling my eyes and groaning. But it's an intriguing historical "what if" that is a great way to spend a few hours. Recommended.

A well written novel exploring the mysterious circumstances of Mozart's actual death in Vienna. Wolfgang's sister, Nannerl, travels to Vienna following a letter from her sister-in-law telling her Wolfgang predicted his own death. Nannerl then digs get way through her brother's life in Vienna--his friends, patrons, and Masonic brothers--to find the truth behind hey brother's death. Was it murder, or an unfortunate case of sickness.

The story is filled with so much music, I wish the book was able to play the music as the characters performed. I appreciated that Rees included a reference of all the music performed in the novel for readers to explore Mozart's genius further.

Mozart's Last Aria is a wonder period piece, full of court intrigue, romance, murder, and, of course, the amazing music of Mozart. Told in the first person, it's style is accessible and inviting. My enjoyment of it was certainly enhanced because of my familiarity with the music it features. I can only think it will be even more enjoyable if readers who are not as intimate with Mozart's music, seek out the recordings (conveniently indexed by the author) and listens to them as they appear in the book.

The only reason I didn't give it five stars, was that every once in a while, the language and actions of the protagonist, and other characters, seemed more like modern times than the late 1700's. The majority of the book, however, including the final unmasking, is both satisfying and completely in character for the time.

I must confess that I really like Mozart's Sister and I'm sure that played a factor in my views of this book. Both were historically based but this one was truly a book of crime and intrigue as Nannerl makes a trip to Vienna and investigates the death of her brother, Wolfgang. She uncovers first one conspiracy and then another. Throw in a little bit of romance, music and Mozart and you have a good book.

I enjoyed this book and felt like the character of Nannerl was treated with all of the historical information that was available. I did get a bit confused toward the end but I would still recommend this book.

I brought this book with me to read in Salzburg. I first cracked open its spine on the train from Munich to Salzburg - a fitting place to begin, I think. I did enjoy it (though it was actually set mostly in Vienna), though not quite as much as I had hoped that I would. The point-of-view had some inconsistencies which were distracting, and overall it lacked that "authentic" feel to a historical novel - even one about famous people. It just felt a touch on the ridiculous side. But, the plot twisted around in some surprising ways, so that did make up for some of its other flaws. It's a fun read, overall - just not a great one.

I have to warn you that I am a fan of Matt Rees's works. To date I have read his works of non-fiction as well as fictional works on the Middle-East published on paper. I welcome the author taking a break from the heart wrenching realities of the Middle-East and taking us on journey to Austria post French Revolution and Mozart. The author has written a work that shows his love and impressive understanding of Bach's music and the times he lived in. He shares without that world without being pedantic.

Matt Rees is a skilled storyteller who brings a variety of situations to life. This book is a departure from his vividly detailed middle eastern settings. Many of us are aware of the shady details of the death of Mozart, and this book combines his talented writing with a deep knowledge of music and dedicated study of history.
Too many false assumptions about Mozart's actual death circumstances.
