Published to complement Mozart Studies (published in 1991), Mozart Studies 2 offers a forum for the most important trends in recent Mozart scholarship, including substantial contributions in gender and genre studies, close readings of individual works (among them the "Prague" symphony and Le nozze di Figaro), textual and contextual research, and new directions in analysis, both for the operas and instrumental music. At the same time, it also aims to suggest directions for future research. In addition to Cliff Eisen, the contributors include leading Mozart scholars, among them Mary Hunter, John Platoff, Wolf-Dieter Seiffert, and Elaine Sisman.
