John Suchet, Mozart. Excellent biography, he reveals the man and his extraordinary life brilliantly. Only downside is that Mozart's music is a bit neglected. Like the great Mozart biographer Wolfgang Hildesheimer Suchet seems not to be a musicologist.

I have just finished John Suchet biography of the Strauss family. Excellent book about his life and the links with the Hapsburgs. I agree Suchet portraits the times brilliantly but is not a musicologist. I will try the Mozary book.
