How would you like to get all of the music Mozart ever wrote, for free?
The Internationale Stiftung Mozarteum has made publicly available an entire search-able library of Mozart’s works. You can search for his pieces by listing, category, key signature, editor, and then print them out for personal use. The website is available in German and English, but German is the default. To switch to English, click the “English” link at the top once you get to the search page.
Why did they do this, you might ask? On their website, it states:
The purpose of this web site operated by the Internationale Stiftung Mozarteum in cooperation with the Packard Humanities Institute is to make Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s musical compositions widely and conveniently accessible to the public, for personal study and for educational and classroom use.
What a marvelous resource! There are also thousands of commentaries available to read, works of doubtful authenticity, sketches, drafts, and fragments of other pieces he may have written. I’m just amazed and grateful that it’s all free.
