Starting with a short welcome, the event proceeded with an introduction to Europeana and Europeana Sounds. Afterwards the role of the music department of the Austrian National Library and the content that was made available within Europeana Sounds were discussed.
The main part of the programme consisted of two presentations by Dr. Thomas Leibnitz, head of the music department. The first manuscript was Ludwig van Beethoven’s Spring Sonata for piano and violin op. 24 and second was an autographic draft of a piano arrangement by Franz Liszt of the second movement of Beethoven’s 6th Symphony – the Pastorale.
The evening ended with a culinary get-together.
