New Mozart Edition: Publication of two new Music Volumes

Two new volumes containing Mozart’s transcriptions and adaptations of works by other composers have been published as a supplement to the New Mozart Edition. 

The volumes, edited by Dietrich Berke (†), Anke Bödeker and Faye Ferguson, completed by Ulrich Leisinger, together number some 300 pages and demonstrate  impressively Mozart’s reaction to his contemporary musical environment. Throughout all periods of his creative life, Mozart transcribed works by other composers, often for study or performance purposes, even adapting them when necessary.  Mozart selected both popular works of the day as well as “Early Music” masterpieces. As Mozart’s transcriptions and adaptations did not always carry the names of the original composers, over time many of these works were ascribed to Mozart as original compositions and were even assigned K. numbers in the main Köchel catalogue.

Mozart’s adaptation of Bach and Handel keyboard fugues for string instruments, his expanded and revised brass settings in arias by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach as well as his treatment of a violin concerto by Viotti may be of special interest for the practical musician.  Mozart’s embellishments and handling of cadenzas in arias by Johann Christian Bach serve as vital evidence of historical performance practice.

The volumes, published by Bärenreiter, Kassel, may be acquired in music bookshops. Currently, the Mozarteum Foundation Salzburg is preparing the final three volumes of the New Mozart Edition for publication, thus bringing to a close the large-scale Mozart project that has engaged three generations of music scholars since 1955.
