Mozart – Like We Have Never Heard It
Before Presentation of an unknown Mozart autograph at the ‘Night of Researchers’ in the National Széchényi Library, Budapest 26 September 2014
A discovery of international significance has been made in the National Széchényi Library in Budapest. An autograph fragment of one of Mozart’s most popular keyboard works – the Sonata in A major, K. 331, best known for its ‘alla turca’ finale – has been identified by Balázs Mikusi, Head of the Music Collection.
The sensational finding will be presented to the public on 26 September 2014, as part of the ‘Night of Researchers’ programme series.
The presentation will be held by Balázs Mikusi (National Széchényi Library), Ulrich Leisinger (Mozarteum Foundation Salzburg) and pianist-cum-conductor Zoltán Kocsis, who will also perform the entire sonata on a modern copy of a fortepiano from Mozart’s time. During the event the original manuscript will be on display.The Sonata in A major, K. 331, belongs among Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s best-known compositions: the concluding ‘alla turca’ is familiar even to those having little interest in classical music. However, the performance of the work poses numerous problems, since – until now – only the last page of Mozart’s autograph has been available to scholars and performers, while the printed editions seem imprecise in several respects.
