- Mozart and the Wolf Gang
Among other things, it attempts to fictionalize Mozart's Symphony No.40.
The book is one of a group of Burgess novels with musical themes, the others being Napoleon Symphony: A Novel in Four Movements, which is built around Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3, A Clockwork Orange, in which Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 features prominently, and The Pianoplayers, about the music hall era.
Mozart and the Wolf Gang brings to life various composers through fictional representations: Prokofiev, Gershwin, Elgar, Rossini, Mendelssohn, Berlioz, Wagner and Schoenberg feature in various dialogues.
In the same year, 1991, that he published the novel, Burgess brought out a work on the composer entitled On Mozart: A Paean for Wolfgang, Being a Celestial Colloquy, an Opera Libretto, a Film Script, a Schizophrenic Dialogue, a Bewildered Rumination.
