Mozart on the web music

Mozart’s entire musical score now free on Internet | Entertainment | Entertainment News | Reuters.com:

The International Mozart Foundation in Salzburg, Austria has put a scholarly edition of the bound volumes of Mozart’s more than 600 works on a Web site.

The site allows visitors to find specific symphonies, arias or even single lines of text from some 24,000 pages of music.

“We had 45,000 hits in the first two hours…we would not have expected that,” program director Ulrich Leisinger told Reuters in a telephone interview.

The version appearing on the Internet is a digitized copy of the “New Mozart Edition” published by Barenreiter, of Kassel, Germany.

It is considered the “gold standard” of Mozart editions and Leisinger said Barenreiter was paid $400,000 for the digital publication rights.
