Towards a New Mozart Documentary Biography
Otto Erich Deutsch’s editions of documentary materials on Handel, Schubert and Mozart are monuments of post-war scholarship on 18th- and early 19th-century music. Although essential for studies of biography and early reception, the Mozart volume is need of revision. The ongoing digitisation of early printed sources has made possible the discovery of hundreds of new documents that provide insight into Mozart’s concert activities, social circle, finances and place in German cultural life. An ongoing project to create an online edition of these documents reveals both the advantages and challenges of digital presentation for historical sources.
The Louise Hanson-Dyer Music Colloquium series perpetuates the legacy and cultural impact of Melburnian music patron and publisher Louise Hanson-Dyer (1884–1962), founder of Éditions de l’Oiseau-Lyre, by bringing cutting-edge issues in music research to a public forum for discussion and debate.
