Processing of the scientific and musical estate of Bernhard Paumgartner (2011/12)


In particular, numerous folders with correspondence as well as the annual reports of the Mozarteum University published in the reference period will be processed. In addition, overviews of available music manuscripts and musical editions of Paumgartner's works, of his writings and specialist literature, as well as a search for photographic material will be carried out.

Furthermore, the development of the digital media database is to be continued;
