History of the Mozart Bibliography

It was in 1962 that Otto Schneider and Anton Algatzy first published an extensive list of writings on Mozart in their Mozart-Handbuch. Their bibliography ran to 2,900 titles. In 1975 the International Mozarteum Foundation decided to publish a bibliography every five years covering the life and works of Wolfgang Amadé Mozart and his family circle. Six volumes appeared between 1976 and 1998. Their editors were Rudolph Angermüller, Otto Schneider, Therese Muxeneder and Johann Senigl.

These printed volumes list around 18,700 titles, all of which are also included in the Bibliotheca Mozartiana’s online catalogue.
