Fux-online offers comprehensive information on Johann Joseph Fux (ca. 1660–1741), the most important composer of the Austrian baroque. It provides texts about Fux and Fux research as well as additions to the scientific edition Johann Joseph Fux – Works. For chosen works, practical performance materials (parts) are made freely available at Fux-online. In addition, the website offers link-lists to digitized manuscripts, portraits and other editions.
The contents of this portal are constantly being expanded. A database with a catalogue of works is in progress, which will enable a quick search for work numbers and titles. Relevant information for performance practice – such as keys, instrumentation and editions – is also recorded. A Fux bibliography is also successively built up along with the database, which can be used as a reference list until the searchable database is published.
