A busy (and prolific) composer like Mozart was writing for the moment, not organizing his papers for posterity. So it’s not surprising that a few things got lost or forgotten along the way.
The International Mozarteum Foundation announced last week that two previously undiscovered piano pieces by Mozart had been found. They’re being closed-mouth about the details right now, but all will be revealed next week, when pianist Florian Birsak performs the pieces in Mozart’s hometown of Salzburg.
