Dear reader, dear Mozart-programmer,

we would like to thank you for the numerous positive reactions to our Newsletter's new format. They confirm our belief that there is a need for concise and clearly structured information on the music, composers and activities of UE.

It may surprise some to find themselves reading about Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in the editorial of this second volume. But Mozart's 250th anniversary in 2006 is of twofold importance to UE: firstly due to the results of the latest research on Mozart interpretation (Wiener Urtext Edition), and secondly thanks to all the new, exciting and highly individual ways in which our composers continue to deal with the phenomenon of Mozart. You can read more about Mozart - viewed and heard anew on page 18 -19.

The editors

Find our newsletter from 2004/2005 online and read the aforementioned feature on Mozart on pages 16 and 17 – yes, as the attentive reader might have noticed, we had the page numbers wrong.
