Some readers have expressed concern regarding the decrease of the frequency of my posts during the last two years. As I explained in June 2015, my research is very time-consuming and I'm not getting paid for my online-publications. If readers are not willing to support this blog with donations, it will have to be discontinued. I would also like to point out that questions and inquiries submitted via e-mail cost time to be answered. And since time is not free, requests can only be answered if they come with a donation.

The current interruption of the blog is caused by work on a major non-musicological research project.


  1. Thank you! Those sure sounds interesting. Do you intend to review some of the recent Mozart books, that is publications to books from 2015-2017? It would be interesting in read what you have to say about essays and books such as "Authenticity and Likeness in Mozart Portraiture" by Cliff Eisen, "Mozart in Vienna: The Final Decade" by Simon P. Keefe, "Mozart's Music of Friends" by Edward Klorman, "Mozart's Chamber Music with Keyboard" by Martin Harlow and "Pianos for Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven: change and contrast" by Michael Latcham.

  2. My time is too precious to waste it on this kind of publications.
