Entire Mozart Collection – Free Sheet Music

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.

You can begin searching through music here (after agreeing to their limited license agreement):

    I highly disagree with the principle that it is acceptable to photocopy music, even if it’s for personal study. I work for a print music dealer and have come to learn that giving someone permission to photocopy music if a piece is not permanently out of print is wrong. Even in that circumstance, the publisher must grant permission, not the dealer. Unless the Packard Institute owns the copyrights of the pieces being displayed, it’s wrong. Do they not realize they’re hurting publishers and print music dealers? How is this any different than piracy of CD’s? In most cases, not all, it is sending a green light that photocopying is OK. Most people cannot distinguish between the legalities or moralities of photocopying. I have chosen not to print these pieces for my personal library because I would hate for my students to see me with photocopied music. What a terrible example!

    If it pains the composer, don’t photocopy. I hardly think Mozart will mind at the moment if we spread his music by PLAYING it as widely as possible.
