Mozart’s Musical Scores Now Fully Available Online

As the cel­e­bra­tion of Mozart’s 250th birth­day winds down, the Inter­na­tion­al Mozart Foun­da­tion has offered up a nice gift to Mozart enthu­si­asts by putting online the mas­ter’s full body of work. This web site, called the Neue Mozart-Aus­gabe, lets vis­i­tors explore over 600 indi­vid­ual works, or 24,000 pages of music, which were for­mer­ly avail­able only in print. You can access the site in Eng­lish, and you can peruse it as much as you like. The only caveat is that users must agree to use the col­lec­tion only for per­son­al pur­pos­es and not to down­load the works in whole­sale fash­ion. So far, the pub­lic response to this offer­ing has been over­whelm­ing. In the first 12 hours after the launch, the online col­lec­tion received more than 400,000 hits. And over the next four days, it received more than 12 mil­lion. With traf­fic lev­els eas­ing up, now might be a good time to take a look.
