Welcome

Harvard Library holds a rich collection of first and early editions and manuscript copies of the musical works of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The purpose of this guide is both to alert Mozart scholars to these significant resources and also to gather together in one list items housed in several locations within the Eda Kuhn Loeb Music Library and Houghton Library. While these items are cataloged in HOLLIS this list offers the opportunity to identify all the primary sources for a given work held at Harvard without having to first sort through the many study editions which also appear in the HOLLIS indexes. We continue to augment this premier collection with new acquisitions. Questions concerning the content of this guide may be sent to its author, Sarah Adams. Questions about access and photoduplication may be sent to Christina Linklater
