The Beginnings of the Mozart Cult in Salzburg: The ‘Cathedral Music Association and Mozarteum’, 1841 – 1880

175 years ago, the ‘Cathedral Music Association and Mozarteum’ ('Dommusikverein und Mozarteum') was founded in Salzburg. On this occasion, the library will open a new exhibition in the Mozart Wohnhaus (Mozart residence) on 25 September 2016, at 4 pm.

The exhibition Franz Xaver Wolfgang Mozart: A Composer of “little ability”? is still on display in the Mozart Wohnhaus!

 


 

Special exhibition: Franz Xaver Wolfgang Mozart - A Composer of “little ability”?

Franz Xaver Wolfgang Mozart was born in Vienna on July 26, 1791, just a few months before the death of his father, Wolfgang Amadé Mozart. More information about the exhibition.

 

 


 

Digitalization and Cataloging of the Historical Collection of the „Dom-Musikverein und Mozarteum“ in Salzburg (to 1881)

In cooperation between the archive of the Archdiocese of Salzburg and the International Mozarteum Foundation, the historical holdings of the „Dommusikverein und Mozarteum” (Society for Music at the Cathedral and Mozarteum) are currently cataloged and digitized. This society, founded in 1841, split into two organizations in 1880: the “Dommusikverein” (Society for Music at the Cathedral) and the “Internationale Stiftung Mozarteum” (International Mozarteum foundation). As a consequence, the library holdings were split between the two institutions. One part is today in the Bibliotheca Mozartiana of the International Mozarteum Foundation, and the other part in the Archive of the Archdiocese of Salzburg.

Most valuable parts of the collection are the letters of Mozart and his family, as well as an important collection of music autographs. Main focus of the project is on music manuscripts which will be cataloged in the RISM database. Work has already begun with the so called “Mozart estate”, the estates of Mozart’s sons Carl Thomas (1784-1858) and Franz Xaver Wolfgang (1791-1844). This part of the collection not only contains works by Mozart, in fact it comprises many works by different composers from the 18th and 19th centuries.

The project is part of the Digital Mozart Edition (DME), a cooperation between the Mozarteum Foundation and the Packard Humanities Institute in Los Altos, California, USA. Director of the project is Dr. Ulrich Leisinger as director of the DME, responsible for the project is Dr. Armin Brinzing as director of the Bibliotheca Mozartiana. Members of the research staff are Dr. Eva Neumayr, Dr. Lars E. Laubhold, Dr. Tobias Apelt and Dr. Peter Rohrmoser.
