“Barth was sometimes asked if his theology demanded a different master in music than Mozart. Barth’s response noted in this volume was emphatically, and characteristically to some, negative—Nein. Regardless of what one makes of Mozart, or of Barth’s view of him . . . the reader gains a greater understanding of Barth’s theology through attention to his reflections on Mozart. For ‘the evangelical Christian,’ Barth’s fascination with the ‘Catholic’ and ‘Freemason’ Mozart was by no means an anomaly that strikes a dissonant chord in Barth’s theological symphony. Rather, it resonates with the melodic line. Like a magic flute, Barth’s tribute to Mozart serves as a key to unlocking the door to the mysteries of Barth’s view of God’s ways with the world.”
