VIENNA (AFP) – Sheet music of all of Mozart's works is now available online for free, following an initiative by Salzburg's International Foundation Mozarteum in honour of the 250th anniversary of his birth.

"With over 400,000 hits on the website in the first 12 hours, one can say demand surpassed our expectations," Mirjam Nellman, spokeswoman for the foundation, based in Mozart's birthplace of Salzburg, told AFP Tuesday.

"The server is a little slow at the moment because of strong demand, but we are working on it," she added.

The unique initiative, entitled NMA Online — for "Neue Mozart Ausgabe," or new Mozart edition — was launched with the help of the Packard Humanities Institute in Los Altos, California. More Here
