Camerata Salzburg

Camerata Salzburg is an acclaimed chamber orchestra which travels around the world – whenever it is not performing right here in its home town, Salzburg, of course.

A very busy orchestra

Camerata Salzburg is one of the busiest chamber orchestras in the world! Concert tours take Camerata Salzburg from its home base at the Mozarteum to venues around the globe. Back in Salzburg, audiences can experience the orchestra during regular appearances at the Salzburg Festival, Mozart Week and at subscription concerts. Their focus is on Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, though the Viennese Classical period is well represented as well.

The History of Camerata Salzburg

Camerata Salzburg was established in 1952 by Salzburg conductor and musicologist Bernhard Paumgartner. He assembled around him a group of teachers and students from the Mozarteum music school to make music together. Since his death, Antonio Janigro (1974-1978), Sándor Végh (1978-1997), Sir Roger Norrigent (1998-2006), Leonidas Kavakos (2006-2009) and, as of 2011, Louis Langrée have all left their mark on Camerata Salzburg.

The unique “Camerata Sound”

It was above all under Sándor Végh that Camerata Salzburg gained international fame. It was also he who put that special “Camerata Sound” on the lips of the musical world. Each voice of the orchestra is given the space it deserves, though without ever neglecting the whole. In doing so, the individuality of each of the 36 musicians is brought to full effect.
