The Mozart-biographer, Johann Heinrich Feuerstein’s copy of the first edition of the first Mozart-opera to be published in full-score, Don Giovanni.

The present copy of the full score of Mozart’s Don Giovanni, belonged to Johann Heinrich Feuerstein (1797–1850), a medical doctor and Mozart enthusiast, known for finishing Nissen’s work, the first full-length biographical study on Mozart (Biographie W. A. Mozart’s. Leipzig, 1828). The core of the work was put together by Georg Nikolaus Nissen (1761–1826) a Danish diplomat, and the second husband of Constanze Weber Mozart, the composer’s widow. After Nissen’s death, Feuerstein was chosen to complete the work, to assemble and edit Nissen’s voluminous notes and extracts. Although his name appears on the title page of the biography only as the author of the foreword, it is believed that in addition, he wrote the 78-page culmination chapter, Mozart als Künstler und Mensch.

Don Giovanni was the first of Mozart's operas to be published in full score. The score was completed late October 1787, and the opera was first performed in Prague on 29 October 1787, the Vienna premiere took place on 7 May 1788.

Provenance: With Johann Heinrich Feuerstein’s ownership inscriptions on the title pages.
