Description

Thirteen Mozart’s songs appeared in print during his lifetime. With the exception of KV 476, 520, 530 and 531. These publications cannot be trusted.

Of these, nine were published by Artaria:
Das Veilchen KV 476 Das Lied der Trennung [The farewell song] KV 519, Abendempfindung an Laura KV 523, An Chloe, Ignaz Alberti (Sehnsucht nach dem Frühlinge [Longing for spring] KV 596, Der Frühling [Spring] KV 597, Das Kinderspiel [Children’s play] KV 598 and Laurenz Lausch (Als Luise die Briefe ihres ungetreuen Liebhabers verbrannte KV 520 and Das Traumbild KV 530.

The remaining four were published in periodicals:
An die Freude [To joy] KV 53, Die kleine Spinnerin KV 531 , Lied beim Auszug in das Feld [Song during the march to the battlefield] KV 552 and an Almanac (Lied der Freiheit [Freedom Song] KV 506.

A song that was printed during Mozart’s lifetime, ‘Daphne, deine Rosenwangen’ [Daphne, your rosy cheeks] KV 52 (46c), now was proven not to be a song by Mozart.

Tredici canzoni di Mozart sono state stampate durante la sua vita, a eccezione delle KV 476, 520, 530 e 531. Queste pubblicazioni a stampa sono inaffidabili.

Di queste canzoni, nove sono state pubblicate da Artaria:
Das Veilchen KV 476 Das Lied der Trennung [La canzone d’addio] KV 519, Abendempfindung an Laura KV 523, An
Chloe, Ignaz Alberti (Sehnsucht nach dem Frühlinge [Voglia di primavera] KV 596, Der Frühling [Primavera] KV 597, Das Kinderspiel [Gioco di bambini] KV 598 e Laurenz Lausch (Als Luise die Briefe ihres ungetreuen Liebhabers verbrannte KV 520 e Das Traumbild KV 530.

Le restanti quattro canzoni apparvero in periodici:
An die Freude [To joy] KV 53, Die kleine Spinnerin KV 531, Lied beim Auszug in das Feld [Canzone durante la marcia verso il campo di battaglia] KV 552 e un Almanacco (Lied der Freiheit [ Canzone della libertà] KV 506.

Una canzone stampata mentre Mozart era vivo, “Daphne, deine Rosenwangen” [Daphne, le tue guance rosee] KV 52 (46c), non è di Mozart.

Mozart The Fall of the Gods is an editorial success that revolutionized the way of thinking about Mozart.

link alla versione italiana: Mozart La caduta degli dei – parte prima)

Bestseller in Italy, subject of study at the University, the book was adopted in the courses of High Music Schools, and discussed in 24 episodes of the Vatican Radio.
It collects the results of the researches on 18th-century music and on Mozart, an author revered as a god for over two centuries. The authors asked themselves the reasons for that cult, and they removed the many clichés from biographies, such as the one of the genius of nature.
Until the last century, the trend was to minimize problems, so as not to disturb the image impressed on the public’s mind. This work, divided into two parts, identifies some contradictory points of the immense Mozartian bibliography, verifies and analyze them.
It reports the sources of each of the almost 2000 citations, to allow the reader to verify them. Mozart The Fall of the Gods – Part 1 is a Copernican revolution that upset the musical world. Now in English!
