Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756–1791)
New Edition of the Complete Works
Edited by the International Mozarteum Foundation, Salzburg in cooperation with the Mozart cities of Augsburg, Salzburg and Vienna
The New Mozart Edition offers researchers a musicologically unimpeachable text based on all the available sources (first and foremost Mozart's autograph manuscripts). At the same time, it also serves as an aid to authentic performances.
The principal Series I to IX, containing Mozart's actual œuvre, appeared between 1956 and 1991. They are regarded as a supreme achievement of Mozart scholarship in our time; modern performances of Mozart's music are unthinkable without them. The important supplementary volumes shed fresh and illuminating light on neglected aspects of Mozart's creative work, such as his activities as a teacher or as an arranger of other composer's works.
The edition is divided into thirty-five groups of works combined into ten series. Each group includes Mozart's finished works in chronological order; sketches, drafts and fragments of the works are located in an appendix to the relevant volume. In addition to the printed text, each volume of music contains a detailed preface and facsimile reproductions from the source material. Each volume of music is also accompanied by a separately published critical report.
The edition comprises the following 10 series:
Series I: Sacred Vocal Works (15 volumes)
Series II: Stage Works (26 volumes)
Series III: Lieder, Part Songs, Canons (3 volumes)
Series IV: Orchestral Works (19 volumes)
Series V: Concertos (14 volumes)
Series VI: Church Sonatas (1 volume)
Series VII: Music for Large Ensembles of Solo Instruments (3 volumes)
Series VIII: Chamber Music (11 volumes)
Series IX: Piano Music (7 volumes)
Series X: Supplement (approx. 25 volumes)
