Meditations on his Life and Mysterious Death


Author: Dr. Stefan Carter


Dr. Stefan Carter, a vascular specialist at the University of Manitoba Medical School, has had a lifelong affection for and affiliation with Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Born in Poland and exposed to Mozart's music from early childhood, Dr. Carter investigates Mozart's life and death, from the dual perspectives of passion and professional training.

A lifetime of careful reading of the literature combined with vascular medical research have led Dr. Carter to speculate about why Mozart died so young. Further research conducted over the years has also yeilded new and fascinating insights into Mozart's family life. This gem of a book, sized at 5.5 x 6 inches, is a perfect gift for music lovers and a timely celebration of one of the world's greatest composers.
