While preparing for a performance in a prestigious competition, a young violinist discovers more about herself, her heritage, and the power of music.

I loved this so much! I had to force myself to read it slowly to savor all the beautiful little random stream-of-consciousness bits, and there were so many moments that just rang so true-- about life, love, loss, fear, music, art, everything.

"Mozart Season" is a realistic fiction book that teaches a great lesson about competitiveness, peak performance, and what it simply means to have fun and enjoy what you're doing. Allegra Shapiro is twelve years old and is the youngest finalist for the Ernest Bloch Young Musician's competition where she will be performing Mozart's Fourth Violin Concerto. At a very young age, Allegra is a virtuoso violinist who struggles with perfecting her craft, having most of her activities scheduled by her parents, and at the same time enjoying her childhood to the fullest with her older brother and two best girlfriends, and simply having fun; whether if it's playing on her softball team, playing the violin, or going on a bike ride by herself.

The story is beautifully told and honestly portrays what childhood has become for most children - overprotective, well-meaning parents who schedule most their children's time, how fierce competition has become in children's activities whether it be sport or music, and the consequent anxiety and fear that children in such situations experience.

Perfect book for children ages 10-12, and provides an effective lesson about taking part in activities out passion and fulfillment rather than mastery and perfection. ( )

Elegant prose narrative of the summer preparation of a 12 year old violinist in Portland, Oregon for the Mozart concert for which she is the youngest finalist. Well-developed characters, diverse and rich thematic foundations. ( )

In Mr. Kaplan's studio is a needlepoint pillow, on a chair. On one side of it is a violin. The other side says, A teacher is someone who makes you believe you can do it.

Spend three months with Mozart. My whole summer vacation. Go through the nervousness all over again.
"I don't see the point," he said. "If you win, you just get up out of your chair and you walk up front, and you stand there and play it. If you lose, you sit there in your place and play your part. Look: you've won one spelling championship thing and you've lost one. That didn't annihilate your whole head or anything; you didn't go around looking for razor blades. You're a lousy twelve years old. Winning won't make you queen of the world. And losing isn't gonna terminate you. It's a concerto; it's not the future of the universe."
I worked on Kreutzer no. 34, which is a good way to insult yourself if you haven't worked on it lately. I played it for almost an hour. It can torture your fingers, and it's good for you.
