International Mozarteum Foundation
Keeping the classical genius up-to-date: Since 1842, Mozarteum Foundation Salzburg has been keeping the Mozart phenomenon vibrantly alive. At festivals, concerts and museums, you, too, can enjoy the palpable heritage of this great Salzburg figure!
Uniting the Mozart legacy with contemporary culture – the Mozarteum Foundation has dedicated itself to this mission since it was founded by citizens of Salzburg City in 1842. From its headquarters at No. 26 Schwarzstrasse, this private non-profit organization fosters contacts with some 100 Mozart communities worldwide. Its activities are focused on three core areas: concerts, museums and research.
The highlight of Mozarteum Foundation Salzburg’s musical program is “Mozart Week”. At around 30 orchestral, chamber and soloist concerts the world’s best Mozart interpreters perform classical as well as contemporary music. We invite you to celebrate along with Mozarteum Foundation Salzburg during the days on and around the birthday of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart on 27 January. An event which, for good reason, is acclaimed as the leading Mozart festival on the international stage.
Dialoge Festival - Mozart for innovators
The Dialoge Festival pursues a more innovative direction than the international Mozart Week. Since its premiere in Mozart Year 2006, this experimental format approaches Mozart’s compositions through a wide variety of artistic forms. Through music, dance, video and drama – often intermixed – this festival allows Salzburg audiences to experience the sounds of Mozart in exciting new ways.
The seasonal concerts hosted by Mozarteum Foundation Salzburg provide a stage for aspiring young talents as well as internationally renowned performers. With diverse concert series and events, Mozarteum Foundation Salzburg dedicates itself to the best of chamber music.
Mozart museums in Salzburg
Mozarteum Foundation Salzburg also runs the museums located at Mozart’s Birthplace and the Mozart Residence. Unique original pieces together with a modern museum experience allow you to walk in Mozart’s footsteps. Tip: Free admission with the Salzburg Card!
Mozat in the digital age: Since 2007, Mozarteum Foundation Salzburg has been working tirelessly to digitize Mozart’s complete works, both the scores as well as audio files. In addition, it houses an impressive manuscript collection as well as the famous Bibliotheka Mozartiana – with around 35,000 titles, the most extensive Mozart library in the world.
