Digital Mozart Editon

Last December, an exciting new resource was announced. In the midst of juries, exams, and holiday gigs, you might have missed the good news.

A digital version of the Neue Mozart Ausgabe (the critical edition of complete works of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart) is now available for personal study and for educational and classroom use compliments of the Internationale Stiftung Mozarteum and the Packard Humanities Institute.

According to the International Stiftung Mozarteum, the Digital Mozart Edition:

is a digital version of the Neue Mozart Ausgabe (NMA; New Mozart Edition), a scholarly edition of Mozart’s complete works that was compiled by musicologists from around the world in the last 50 years . . . It aims at facilitating the systematic research on Mozart for musicologists and performers as well as making Mozart’s scores available to non-specialists with a simple, user-friendly interface. The initiators have acquired all digital rights to the NMA from Bärenreiter-Verlag in Kassel, the publisher of the printed edition.”

Stay tuned for a more detailed description of this resource in the near future. ~Bonnie
