Two Lost Mozart Works Uncovered

Postby GonzoBass » Thu Jul 23, 2009 9:40 pm

VIENNA (July 23) – The International Mozarteum Foundation said Thursday
it has discovered two more works composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

The previously unknown works are piano pieces composed by a young Mozart,
the Salzburg-based foundation said in a brief e-mail statement.

The Web site of the organization said its department of research had identified two works,
long in the foundation's possession, as Mozart compositions.

Mozart, who was born in Salzburg, lived from 1756 to 1791.
He played piano from an early age, began composing music when he was 5,
and eventually created more than 600 works,
ranging from operas to chamber music, choral pieces and piano concertos.

The foundation declined to provide more details Thursday,
saying specifics would be made public during a presentation in Salzburg on Aug. 2.

During the event, Austrian musician Florian Birsak will perform the pieces on an original Mozart piano.
The foundation, established in 1880,
seeks to preserve Mozart's heritage and find new approaches for analyzing the composer.


They say these are "piano pieces composed by a young Mozart".
Hmmm.
I wonder how he'd feel about his early "unreleased" material going public.
Still, as a fan, I'd love to hear them!

What I don't get is the part that says-
"The Web site of the organization said its department of research had identified two works,
long in the foundation's possession, as Mozart compositions."
Intriguing...

Michael Jackson already held copyrights. The works can't be performed until his estate is settled. It could be years. By which time they will probably be lost again. [smilie=fun_84.gif]
