Free Mozart scores go online

A free Mozart database has been launched on the internet, with 24,000 pages of sheet music incorporating all the composer's works. The database also contains more than 8,000 pages of critical commentary, said Ulrich Leisinger, head of research at the International Mozart Foundation. The site, dme.mozarteum.at, has had more than 1m hits since its launch on Monday. Next summer it hopes to make available 270 letters written by Mozart, some 100 original manuscripts and about 2,000 pages of texts accompanying many vocal works.
