      This short bookor closer to a novella, is written as a diary. It's a different look of how one man sees the world changing around him --(first person narrative)--during the early years of WWII. Under the Nazi regimeeir local party planned to use a local cultural event for biased-promoting political causes. Otto J. Steiner was horrified that the Nazi's were going to have a Mozart festival and turn it into a fascist "nightmare" event. Otto was going to do everything he could to *save* his beloved [...]

      Este es un libro muy especial como podéis intuir. Yo no voy a hacer listas de "lo mejor del año" porque lo está haciendo todo el mundo y a mí sinceramente me da muchísima pereza. Sin embargo si la hiciera, éste estaría entre los 3 primeros. En pocas palabras, me ha encantado este libro y aún tengo ciertos ecos del mismo en mi cabeza desde que lo terminé, hará un par de días.

      Me gustaría mucho que, de esta pequeña obra literaria escrita en forma de diario, se obtuviera un argumento para una película, creo que cuenta con ingredientes suficientes para ello: un telón de fondo tan heroico como cruento que es la segunda guerra mundial, un protagonista melómano enfermo de tuberculosis recluido en un hospital y que se pregunta si sería mejor estar afuera en la crueldad de la guerra o adentro en la reclusión de un infecto y sombrío hospital; una escenografía majestu [...]

      Perhaps the greatest novel about Sanatoriums’ is Mann’s Magic Mountain. It’s difficult not to think of that novel when reading this one. Jersusalmy’s style is far removed from Mann’s, though his book is just as good. The connection comes because of what happened to Mann and his works under Nazi Germany. Jerusalmy’s novel is about Otto, a man who is slowly dying in an Austria sanatorium when the Nazis take Austria. He finds not only things changing (he isn’t quite sure about what h [...]

      A well written and engaging novella, giving a different perspective on the holocaust.Told in the form of diary entries and letters it is the story of the Jewish music critic Otto Steiner, and his involvement in the organisation of a music festival in Salzburg on behalf of the Nazi’s.The easy reading style and quiet humour can lull you into a false sense of security, away from the horrors that are actually occurring in occupied Austria. However you are jolted out of your false security and boug [...]

      A very moving story of a lonely old man who wants to shield music from being transformed into a propaganda tool. For those who truly love music and understand that it has incredible power to trigger several complex and beautiful emotions and memories in people must read this brilliant tale and a true music crusader.

      Me gustan los diarios. Mucho. Me resultan cómodos para leer y cuentan mucho con menos palabras. Eso hace Otto en Salvar a Mozart. Con poco nos cuenta tantoNavona y sus aciertos. Los ineludibles empiezan a ser imprescindibles en mi vida lectora.

    • Andrew says:

      It is very difficult to imagine how we would react in the situation many were faced with in the second world war. Perhaps fiction allows us as readers to step into another person's shoes and imagine whether we would be brave enough to even commit a small act of resistance, thus I think of the postcards in 'alone in Berlin' and the consequences that befall the couple therein. In this beautifully crafted novella a former music critic slowing deteriorating from TB in an Austrian Santorum at the out [...]

      Un livre court qui pourtant m'a parut long. L'histoire d'un homme tuberculeux durant la deuxième guerre mondiale qui aide son ami à organiser des spectacles de musique classique pour Hitler et sa gang. L'histoire est racontée à travers le journal d'Otto J. Steiner. Ce qui est intéressant, c'est l'action que prendra Steiner pour sauver, ou plutôt venger Mozart.

    • Sonya L Moore says:

      I borrowed this book from Ron Hanks who gave it a five-stellar rating, as have I. It is a short novel, but not necessarily a quick read, as I found myself slowing down, re-reading beautiful and powerful passages, and then remembering the history of the period. The author, "Raphaël Jerusalmy is a graduate of the Ecole Normale Supérieure and the Sorbonne, has made a career in the Israeli military intelligence before conducting humanitarian operations and education. He is now old book dealer in T [...]

      A very interesting look at life under the Nazi regime, the narrator is a sick former music critic shut away in a sanatorium, dying of TB. As the influence and reach of the Nazi regime grows he sees the world of culture and of sickness change around him. The local party are determined to use a local cultural event for propaganda purposes and our narrator does everything he can to 'save' his beloved Mozart from being used in the base manner. This is comparable works written from the 'inside' of th [...]

      A depressing but ultimately uplifting little novel. Very much worth the read. From : Raphaël Jerusalmy’s debut novel takes the form of the journal of Otto J. Steiner, a former music critic of Jewish descent suffering from tuberculosis in a Salzburg sanatorium in 1939. Drained by his illness and isolated in the gloomy sanatorium, Steiner finds solace only in music. He is horrified to learn that the Nazis’ are transforming a Mozart festival into a fascist event. Steiner feels helpless at firs [...]

      Me leí este libro literalmente en una sentada. Es la novela debut de Raphael Jerusalmy, donde se narra en forma de diario los últimos días de la vida de un crítico musical austríaco, enfermo de tuberculosis, que a comienzos de la II Guerra Mundial ve con horror cómo los Nazis invaden los espacios musicales donde debería reinar por siempre Mozart.El plan de Otto Steiner, que así se llama el personaje, para salvar a Mozart de la música marcial es sutil y genial, e incluye un intento de as [...]

      A famous conductor has an opportunity to present a concert to high officers and other hoi polloi ranking in the Third Reich. He’s retired, quite ill, and it is strongly implied that he is secretly of Hasidic origin. With nothing to lose, he details his personal plot to challenge the musical tastes of his anticipated audience.Mozart's music is often considered to be universal and sublime. This novella seeks to find those qualities while sticking it to the enemy. Which, on reflection, is also ve [...]

      Beautifully written. Dying of consumption in a poorly run sanatorium in Salzburg, a lonely, conflicted music critic records his days in the first diary he has ever written. His determination to stay alive is fueled by his desire to "save Mozart" at the 1940 Salzburg Festspiele. As he does, he has also stopped "a voice from being silenced. One voice out of many thousands, but a voice, which, if it had been stifled, would have killed the music in me. And all music." And the symbol for which that m [...]

      J'ai dévoré ce livre envoyé dans l'abonnement Grand lecteurs du mois de septembre 2016 d'Exploratology.Otto J. Steiner atteint de la tubercolose, virtuose passionné de musique vit dans un sanatorium de Salzbourg dans années 1939-1940. Il tient son journal. La musique le retient à la vie jour après jour. Mais pas vraiment suffisamment, il est devenu inutile dans cette société et prépare une petite vengeance à lui. Le personnage est détaché mais attachant. Superbe lecture.

    • Greg Shelnutt says:

      Amazing how the perspective from a dying consumptive's bed can be so broad. Raphael Jerusalmy's Saving Mozart is a short but engaging novel that pit's the Third Reich's Teutonic sonic ambitions against one music critic's subtle act of musical transgression. A welcome addition to cannon of diasporic literature.

    • Emily says:

      A nice read, I mostly enjoyed the accurate musical references (I'm a nerd like that). I think many people would be intrigued by the Nazis' blatant use of music to their own ends, but that's something I've learned about all through my schooling, so it wasn't that fascinating to me.

    • Nieves Villalón says:

      Un esclarecedor testimonio de un enfermo que pasas sus últimos momentos en medio de la cruda Segunda Guerra Mundial. Tiene la ¿podemos llamarlo suerte? de estar en un sanatorio, pero las cosas que nos cuentan nos dan los mismos escalofríos que nos daría un relato de las trincheras.

    • Jemathomp says:

      This is one of the best books I have read in a long time. It is the fictional diary of a man in a Salzburg sanitorium at the beginning of WWII. His thoughts about his family and his love of music fill the diary. Only 124 pages long, his story and passion will make you smile at the end.

    • Anita says:

      First person narrative of a sanitarium patient during the early years of WWII may not appeal to everyone. His dogged pursuit of a personal goal as a music critic, professional sustains his life although his health deteriorates. Historical content included adds depth to the story.

    • Elizabeth Click says:

      Un enfermo de tuberculosis amante de la música clásica en la segunda guerra mundial intentando matar a Hitler con un brebaje con un alto contenido en azúcar y bicarbonato, que risas me ha dado su sentido de ver la vida a pesar de sus desgracias. Melodía para los sentidos de fácil lectura. Leedlo!

    • Andreu Escrivà says:

      Un llibre que es llegeix tot d'una, perquè és impossible desapegar-se de les seues pàgines. La història d'Otto Steiner, que manté la dignitat fins i tot en un entorn hostil i llòbrec, és una d'aquelles que perviu a la memòria. Molt recomanable.

    • Moira says:

      A beautiful little gem. An original slant on WW2 in Austria, music and suffering a debilitating disease. As perfectly composed and performed as a smaller Mozart composition.
