Rowohlt Releases Rolando’s Latest Novel, Amadeus auf dem Fahrrad


This month, Rowohlt releases Rolando Villazon’s latest novel, Amadeus auf dem Fahrrad. The novel follows Vian Maurer, a young living in Salzburg who dreams of becoming an opera singer. Because of a strict father and singing teachers who argue over whether he is a tenor or baritone, Vian is only cast as a supernumerary in local production Mozart’s Don Giovanni. Vian travels throughout Salzburg, discovering the magic of his beloved composer’s hometown. Lighthearted and vivid, Rolando creates a lovable character in a beautiful homage to Mozart.
