Bookreporter: Mozart’s Last Aria ‘elegant’; Rees ‘gently eccentric’

A very nice review of my new novel Mozart’s Last Aria on Bookreporter.com has this to say, among other amusing and insightful observations:

Music is notoriously difficult to capture in prose; Matt Rees tries valiantly, elegantly, and for the most part successfully to do justice to a composer who is regarded — and not just by me — as a deity. Rees himself comes off in interviews as gently eccentric: “I write standing up, doing yoga stretches, and listening to Mozart,” he confides. I think Wolfgang would have liked that.
