Mozart Week 2016
22nd – 31st January 2016

Mozart and Mendelssohn

Mozart Week in 2016 will be dominated by choral and orchestral works by Mozart and Mendelssohn. It also features a continuation of the voyage of discovery around the works of Mozart’s. Acis and Galatea is a masterpiece by Georg Friedrich Händel that Mozart created a new, modern version of in 1788.

 

Another fascinating feature of the week will be the concerts in which Sir John Eliot Gardiner conducts his Monteverdi Choir and the English Baroque Soloists as they play Mozart’s Requiem and mass in c-minor. Audiences can also marvel at the magnificence of Mendelssohn’s oratorio ‘Elias’ and the wonderful palm settings such as ‘As pants the hart’. Furthermore, there will be a performance of a moving and multifaceted piece by Henri Dutilleux. His music is as enigmatic and secretive as his life itself.

 

Other concerts during Mozart Week 2016 

 

The focus of the chamber music and soloist concerts during Mozart Week in 2016 will also be on Mozart, Mendelssohn and Dutilleux. The largest age gap among the performers ever to have been noted at a Mozart Week can be found between the Mozart children’s orchestra and the legendary pianist Menahem Pressler.

Salzburg's Festival for classical music in winter

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.
