Uber die MusicAtlas
Welcome to this unique collection of maps (see below), completely dedicated to everything related to classical composers and their music. Follow the footsteps of your favorite composer, or find out about composer memorabilia in a certain city or country. Besides, many theaters, concert halls, museums, musical institutions and nice organs are mentioned.
This project started in November 2008 with Hungary. Later more countries, like Italy, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Germany and France, were added. More countries will follow after these. The maps of Great Britain and Ireland have many unverified data.
Almost all the information here was carefully collected and described by musicologist Ed Tervooren, who traveled all over Europe for this. He also took many photographs, which you can see here too. There are also some contributions by others.
Note: The research for the MusicAtlas continues and new items will be added again and again, but inevitably there will still be gaps. Therefore additions and corrections by the visitors of this site are indispensable and will be welcomed gratefully.
