Salzburg's Festival for classical music in winter
January 26 - February 5, 2017
During Mozart Week 2017, you will again be able to experience horses at the Felsenreitschule. In a performance of Mozart’s Requiem, these beautiful animals are certain to captivate audiences once more.
Horses at the Felsenreitschule in a performance of Mozart’s Requiem
It took many years for horses to return to the Felsenreitschule in Salzburg, a place that was originally created especially for them. But in 2015, the time had finally arrived, enthralling the audience as part of a presentation of Mozart’s “Davide penitente”.
You will now be able to enjoy an equally compelling event during Mozart Week 2017. Building upon that invaluable first experience, the concept has now been taken to an even higher artistic level, which we invite you to discover first-hand at the upcoming performance of Mozart’s Requiem.
Additional Program Highlights of Mozart Week 2017
As usual, aside from Mozart you will also be able to hear works by Beethoven and Haydn. The bandwidth to be offered ranges from concerts by chamber ensembles and soloists, to museum concerts and even a film program at the Mozart Residence.
The concerts will be performed by the Vienna Philharmonic, the Salzburg Orchestra, the Mozart Children’s Orchestra and others. As is the case every year, Mozart Week promises a rich and colorful program, one which we hope you, too, will be a part of!

About the Mozart Week
Mozart Week is organized by the International Mozarteum Foundation each January around Mozart's birthday, offering opera productions as well as orchestral, chamber music and soloist concerts. World-renowned Mozart conductors such as Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Andràs Schiff or Marc Minkowski and orchestras such as the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, the Musiciens du Louvre Grenoble or the Mozarteum Orchestra Salzburg will be on the program.
Ensembles such as the Hagen Quartet and a number of soloists are responsible for the festival's artistic reputation in Salzburg. The Large Hall of the Mozarteum, the House for Mozart, the Large Festival Hall, the Mozarteum University's Solitär, the Mozart Museums and the Felsenreitschule will serve as the venues.
Salzburg's classical music festival in winter was first held in 1956 and has since become a highlight on the international calendar of concert events for Mozart lovers and classical music fans. The added charm of the snow-covered city of Salzburg also makes Mozart Week visitors happy to return.
