Vol. I - 2021

Editor’s note

Mozart Studies is an annual journal edited by the Romanian Mozart Society (RMS) and the National Academy of Music “Gheorghe Dima” (Academia Națională de Muzică „Gheorghe Dima” – ANMGD) based in Cluj-Napoca (Romania). We launch today the first issue of Mozart Studies, containing lectures given at the symposium which took place in 2018, organized by the RMS in partnership with the Doctoral School of the ANMGD.

This first edition is issued with the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the RMS. Over these years, the RMS has already published three volumes of studies about Mozart’s music, in Romanian language (Studii mozartiene), in 2002, 2006, and 2020. The first two volumes include lectures given by participants at the symposia held within the Mozart Festivals organized by the RMS. The latest is an homage to the founder of the RMS, professor Francisc László, containing all his articles about Mozart’s music, translated into Romanian.

The main goal of this new journal is to publish regularly the papers presented at the Mozart symposia, organized every year by the RMS within the Mozart Festival in Cluj-Napoca. Other contributions on topics related to Mozart’s work and its interpretation, or to the music of his time will be welcomed as well. Additionally, we are interested in publishing reviews of books or important events. An online version of the journal will also be available soon.

Hoping that our journal will kindle your interest, we wish you pleasant reading.
