And who says old things never turn up?!
The Stiftung Mozarteum, in Salzburg (meine Lieblingsstadt!), has announced a newly-discovered piano composition (hard to describe it more fully, as there is little information given so far…). Handwriting experts claim the piece to be by Mozart and, found in a music book in Innsbruck by researcher/lecturer Dr. Hildegarde Herrmann-Schneider, date the book itself to 1780 — so, for once, we may have a more mature “unknown” Mozart composition! (Mozart would have been about age 24.)
Stay tuned: the piece will have its presumed “world premiere” in the Tanzmeistersaal of the Mozart Wohnhaus on 23 March 2012.
