Event description

Description

This series of colloquia perpetuates the legacy and cultural impact of Melburnian music patron and publisher Louise Hanson-Dyer (1884–1962), founder of Éditions de l’Oiseau-Lyre, by bringing cutting-edge issues in music research to a public forum for discussion and debate.

Towards a New Mozart Documentary Biography

Otto Erich Deutsch’s editions of documentary materials on Handel, Schubert and Mozart are monuments of post-war scholarship on eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century music. Although essential for studies of biography and early reception, the Mozart volume is need of revision. The ongoing digitisation of early printed sources has made possible the discovery of hundreds of new documents that provide insight into Mozart’s concert activities, social circle, finances and place in German cultural life. An ongoing project to create an online edition of these documents reveals both the advantages and challenges of digital presentation for historical sources.

David Black graduated from Harvard University, and was then a research fellow at Homerton College, Cambridge. He has published in numerous venues, including a chapter for the Cambridge History of Eighteenth-Century Music. His critical edition of the Mozart Requiem is published by Edition Peters. He is now a policy adviser on university funding at the Commonwealth Department of Education.
