New Finding Aid to Mozart Vocal Music

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.
