About the Musicatlas

Sheet Music Plus Featured Sale

Welcome to this unique collection of maps (see the overview), 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 theatres, concert halls, museums, musical institutions and nice organs are mentioned.

This project started in November 2008 with Hungary. Later Italy and the Czech Republic were added. Germany is currently being added, and more countries will follow after these. There are also maps of the Great Britain and Ireland, but with many unverified data.

All the information here was carefully collected and described by musicologist Ed Tervooren, who travelled all over Europe for this. He also took many photographs, which you can see here too.

Note: The research for the MusicAtlas continues and new items will be added again and again, but inevitably there will still be gaps (in some cases already marked by a “?”). Therefore additions and corrections by the visitors of this site are indispensable and will be welcomed gratefully.
