Summary

"Fierce Love" is a memoir that tells the story of British artist Adrian Snell and his Christian music, while also introducing the reader to the world of music therapy. It chronicles the career of Adrian as one of the most prolific artists of faith in his field. As his career evolves, children continue to be a window into new perspectives and ideas. 

 
Adrian ultimately decides to give up the "artist" life, disillusioned by a repeating pattern of struggles in order to allow the music to be heard by a broader audience. After a time of soul-searching, he makes a life-altering decision to train as a music therapist. He not only rediscovers his purpose but also gains a new perspective on the impact of music.

 
He later reconnects with his audience; a "lost child" once again "found" with a fresh appreciation for the arts and the implications of unconditional love and acceptance. The story, however, is not over. A private revelation also allows him to look back on his storied career and personal life with new eyes.

    A music historian uncovers Nazi Germany’s use of Mozart as a WWII propaganda tool in this “intriguing study [that] comprehends a range of vital topics” (Choice).   As the Nazi war machine expanded its bloody ambitions across Europe, the Third Reich sought to promote a sophisticated and even humanitarian image of German culture through the tireless promotion of Mozart’s music. In this revelatory book, Erik Levi draws on World War II era articles, diaries, speeches, and other archival materials to provide a new understanding of how the Nazis shamelessly manipulated Mozart for their own political advantage.  Mozart and the Nazis also explores the continued Jewish veneration of the composer during this period while also highlighting some of the disturbing legacies that resulted from the Nazi appropriation of his work. Enhanced by rare contemporary illustrations, Mozart and the Nazis is a fascinating addition to the study of music history, World War II propaganda, and twentieth century politics.
