Full-color facsimile edition of the seven great operas of Mozart—”Idomeneo”, “Le nozze di Figaro”, “Cosi fan tutte”, “Die Entführung aus dem Serail”, “Don Giovanni”, “Die Zauberflöte”, and “La clemenza di Tito”—sponsored jointly by the Packard Humanities Institute and the International Mozart Stiftung on the occasion of the 250th anniversary of the composer’s birth. Remarkably Mozart’s autograph scores to all seven works have survived nearly complete and are preseved today in the Staatsbibliothek–Berlin, Bibliothèque Nationale–Paris, British Library–London, Biblioteka Jagiellonska–Krakow, and in other locations. Each work of this exciting facsimile edition, beginning with Idomeneo, have been issued in a fine bibliophile format with 4-color process printing, accompanied by scholarly commentaries in German and English. The project was directed by Ulrich Konrad, David W. Packard, Wolfgang Rehm, and Christoph Wolff under the general supervision of Dietrich Berke. Commentators and contributors of individual volumes include Hans Joachim Kreutzer, Ulrich Konrad, Christoph Wolff, John Rice, and Bruce Brown. The series is now complete. Due to generous underwriting by the Packard Humanities Institute the price per opera will be $200, an extraordinary low price for a publication of this size and quality.
