Welcome to my site!
I'm Rita Charbonnier, author of
Mozart's Sister: A Novel.
Here you'll find information about my writing
and the wonderful Maria Anna Nannerl Mozart:
a musical genius born in the body of a woman.
«Charbonnier brings Nannerl’s relationship with music to life, from the joy in composing to interpreting a score to the physical nuances of performing.»
«Rita Charbonnier’s novel transcends all the tired stereotypes, winning over even the most cynical readers with its plaintive lyricism and beguiling narrative.»
«Charbonnier’s dialogue is lively, while her narrative voice is wonderfully droll at times, moving at others. Her characters, ranging from a baron who spouts bad poetry to the mercurial Mozart, are vivid.»
