Summary

In the darkest time of the Middle Ages, Gioncavallo, a blacksmith's son in medieval Italy is left alone to fend for himself after his parents died of a fever. No matter how hard he tries to avoid it, trouble always seem to find its way to him. Whether it is offended husbands, the city's lord, the church, or supernatural threats, Gioncavallo faces his problems head on, with inexhaustible willpower. But how long can a person live on the run, alone? And does he truly have bad luck, or is there something more sinister at play?

    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.
