Dan -

I'd like to read the entire scholarly paper. Is the Mozart Jahrbuch
article in English or German? I've looked for it online, but found
only a reference in German at .

Also, is it available online, or in an English version at a library
where I can see or order it? If not, would you and Robert Levin
consider making it available on, or perhaps provide
individual copies?
