Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: A Guide to Primary and Secondary Resources at the Library of Congress

Sound Recordings

Some recordings of Mozart's music have been digitized and made available to listen and download on the Library's website. The sections on this page provide several different examples as well some print resources to locate additional recordings.

Many of these historical sound recordings of Mozart's music are performances and arrangements (often for vocal soloist or small wind ensemble) from the early 20th century. They are made available through the National Jukebox. Recordings in the Jukebox were issued on record labels now owned by Sony Music Entertainment, which has granted the Library of Congress a gratis license to stream acoustical recordings. To find these recordings, search "Mozart" in the National Jukebox Collection.

Recordings of Mozart's music are plentiful. The following titles link to discographies with fuller bibliographic information in the Library of Congress Online Catalog. Links to additional online content are included when available. Many biographies and other scholarly works on Mozart often include biographies. See the "Music Literature" page of this research guide for more information.
