Reception & Interpretation


The Mozart Audio-Visual Collection (Mozart Ton- und Film-Sammlung/MTFS) is available to the public free of charge (however, lending is not possible). It has been set up for use by scholars, students, Mozart lovers, as well as school groups, singers, instrumentalists, directors and conductors. The large screen may also be used by groups upon reservation.

Opened in 1991 in the Mozart Residence, the Mozart Audio-Visual Collection is the largest specialized archive of sound and visual recordings of Mozart’s life and works. The collection includes 35,000 sound recordings (the oldest dates back to 1889) and 5,000 video productions. It is possible to listen to recordings or watch films directly in the archive. For individual works, more than 300 different interpretations are available. Another 12,000 recordings are documented in the collection’s online database. The collection itself includes numerous performances of works, rehearsal excerpts, documentaries, feature films, plays, and children’s films.
