Mozart's Ghosts

Mark Everist

Oxford University Press

Modern views of French nineteenth-century understandings of Mozart have been colored by access only to the writings of Berlioz which, however imaginative from a literary viewpoint, represent a highly idiosyncratic and pointed view. An alternative, and more typical, perspective may be obtained by examining the changing views on Mozart during the half century that Ange-Henri Blaze (dit Blaze de Bury; 1813-1888) wrote music criticism for the Revue des deux mondes (1834-1882). Beginning with his work on the 1834 production of Don Giovanni at the Paris Opéra and his play Le souper chez le commandeur, the chapter gives an account of not only Blaze de Bury's views on Mozart's music but the ways in which they changed from the period after the death of Beethoven to the zenith of Wagnérisme.
