This is right up my alley. Ricemutt from Experiments in Finance brought this to my attention. The International Mozart Foundation has digitized and made available the musical scores to 24,000 of W.A. Mozart’s compositions. You can find the library online at the Digital Mozart Edition.
Here’s some frugal entertainment, with very little expense: Get your friends together, print out and distribute the scores to the woodwind quintets, and start playing. If your friends don’t have the instruments, you can find kazoos for 10 cents a piece.
