London, Jul 24: Two previously unknown compositions written by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart have been discovered by the International Mozarteum Foundation in Salzburg.
"The Department of Research at the International Mozarteum Foundation Salzburg has identified two works, which have long been in the possession of the Foundation, as compositions of the young Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart," the foundation said in a statement, without giving any more details.
On Aug 2, the two pieces for piano will be presented to the press, reports The Telegraph.
They will be performed by clavichordist Florian Birsak on Mozart's own fortepiano at the family's old Salzburg residence.
Born in Salzburg in 1756, Mozart began composing at the age of five and went on to produce some of the most famous concertos, symphonies and operas of his time, until his death in 1791.
