The Australian professor who put about the claim that Bach’s cello suites were written by Anna Magdalena Bach is now claiming that Maria Anna Mozart may have composed some of her brother’s music.
‘We know that Maria Anna composed but no one has ever been able to identify the music written by her,’ Martin Jarvis, of Charles Darwin University, told the Daily Telegraph. ‘Now we have identified her musical fingerprint, we can look for music in her hand and see whether there is evidence of her helping her brother. What is distinctly possible is that with the works of Wolfgang Amadeus, she may have had some involvement in it – particularly the earlier pieces. We have not found evidence of it yet.’
