The University of Washington Music Library is pleased to share the new finding aid for the Eric Offenbacher collection of Mozart vocal recordings. Recordings in the Offenbacher Mozart Collection include Mozart operatic arias and ensembles, concert arias, lieder, and sacred music of Mozart. This extensive collection includes over 1500 recordings on 78 and LP. Offenbacher, a collector of Mozart recordings and manuscripts, donated his recording collection to the UW Music Library in 1978. His manuscripts and book materials became Harvard University’s “Biblioteca Mozartiana Eric Offenbacher.” Special thanks to music librarian John Gibbs for his work organizing and preserving this important collection and to Mark Carlson for his assistance setting up the finding aid.
