Franz Beyer (musicologist)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Franz Beyer (born 1922) is a German musicologist who is best known for his revising and restoration of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's music, in particular his unfinished Requiem, KV 626, which he restored in the early 1970s.[1][2]

His revision of the Requiem was in keeping with Mozart's actual musical style, not his own interpretation of the work. He has also revised and/or edited works of other composers.[3] He has also played in the Collegium Aureum as a violist,[4] and collaborated with the Melos Quartet as additional violist when performing Mozart's string quintets.[5][6]
