Salzburg's Festival for classical music in winter
January 22 – February 1, 2015
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.
The cantata "Davide penitente" – a beautiful piece, whose scenic interpretation will lie in the hands of the "horse choreographer" Bartabas and his team from the Académie équestre de Versailles, will be the highlight of the 2015 Mozart Week.
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.
