Leopold Mozart, the father of one of the world s most supreme composers, died in 1787. At the time of his death, his apartment held precious treasures given to his brilliant son and daughter during their lengthy European tour of 1763-1766.

Furthermore, it is likely that memorabilia and portraits collected in the 21 years following that tour were also in Leopold s apartment. There is little historical record about what his collection might have contained at the time of his death, or what happened to it. In 2003, an American antiques collector, traveling in Italy, bought what he thought were some interesting pieces from a woman merchant.

Though he was unaware of what he had stumbled into at that time, these pieces now appear to have been a portion of Leopold Mozart s estate. The collection s owner engaged the author of this book to examine and comment on the approximately 40 pieces in the acquisition.

The telling of the story of each of the collection s pieces and how they survived for more than two centuries is rich with Mozart history.
