Salzburg to display Mozart’s school book

A private donor has bought for the Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation a book from which Leopold Mozart taught his little son how to write music. The manuscript copy made by the Mozarts of a work by Eugenio di Ligniville will go on display in the Mozart Residence during the Festival.

The item was auctioned on 28 May 2015 at Sotheby’s in London and bought by Salzburg’s benefactor for £167,000 (€ 237,000).
