Leopold Mozart Violinschule

A digital edition of Leopold Mozart’s Violinschule

Even without his two musical children, Leopold Mozart (1719–1787) would not be forgotten today. The Violinschule, first published in 1756 (the year of Wolfgang Amadé Mozart’s birth), was the most influential treatise on violin playing in Germany for many decades and it was revised and re-issued in Germany and beyond several times. The Violinschule is now a significant source on 18th century musical and violin practice.
