Now anyone can take a close up look at original manuscripts of Mozart’s music and letters written by Mozart and his family. The Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation has digitized thousands of priceless documents from its archives and made them available free online. The Mozarteum’s Ulrich Leisinger explains, in this conversation with producer Wes Horner.
FIRST EDITION MOZART
Mozart was only 7 years old when he first became a published composer. It was an edition printed during a visit the young visit Mozart made to Paris with his father and sister. Producer Wes Horner and the Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation’s Armin Brinzing take a look at this very rare, first edition Mozart, in a visit to the Mozarteum’s archives.
More than 250 years after Mozart himself performed on his violin, the instrument has arrived in its new home, in Salzburg. In a close up encounter with Mozart’s violin, in this conversation with Gabriele Ramsauer, producer Wes Horner has the story.
MOZART’S FATHER, ON HOW TO PLAY THE VIOLIN
Mozart was born in Salzburg in 1756. That same year, Mozart’s father Leopold published a book, A Treatise on the Fundamentals of Violin Playing. The book is still regarded as an authoritative text on violin playing – and how to be a good musician. Armin Brinzing, Director of the Mozarteum Foundation’s Bibliotheca, takes us into the vaults of the Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation for a close up look at first edition copies of Leopold’s book. Producer Wes Horner has the story.
