detail of page

Meisterwerke der Musik im Faksimile, 34. Laaber, 2016. 30 x 24 cm, xvi, 74 pp. Color facsimile of the autograph score completed 6 Dec. 1786. The original ms was not among those sold by Constanza to Johann Anton André, but rather took a circuitous route, believed once to be in the hands of the choir director Anton Stoll (or Ferdinand III Grand Duke of Toscana), passing to the Moravian singer Franz Hauser in 1848 and 10 years later into the collection of Franz Liszt, from whom it was transferred to the Royal Library in Berlin. The “Prague”, or third of 7 symphonies from the Vienna decade 1781-1791 occupies a unique position within Mozart’s mature works, calling for pairs of flutes, oboes, bassoons, horns, and trumpets. It's 3-movement form is also unusual and has produced inexhaustible discussion. Introduction in Ger-Eng. Coverboards in decorative paper. Subscription price valid until 6/30/16. $177
