Offenbacher Mozart Collection


The Offenbacher Mozart Collection is a collection of standard play (78 rpm)and long play (Lp) recordings of the vocal music (operatic arias and ensembles, concert arias, lieder, and sacred music) of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. This extensive collection was donated to the University of Washington Libraries in 1978 by Dr. Eric Offenbacher. Since that time the Music Library Listening Center has added to this collection which now contains over 1500 recordings.

An exhibit of record labels from the collection is available online. Research Materials of the Biblioteca Mozartiana Eric Offenbacher with personal annotations by Dr.Offenbacher are now available at the Eda Kuhn Loeb Music Library at Harvard University along with a complete bibliography of books, scores, and facsimiles and libretti in the collection.
