Two long-lost works by Mozart discovered
Published on July 23rd, 2009 | by Admin1
Two unknown fragments of music by Mozart are believed to have turned up in a library in Nantes in western France. If authenticated by musical scholars, at least one of the pieces may be performed in a festival in the city next year.
A yellowing sheet of paper, held in the library since the 19th century, contains two or three lines of music, and a separate jumble of notes, signed Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The music had previously been assumed to be a rough draft, or copy, of extracts from two of the 626 known pieces by the 18th century Austrian composer.
