Mozart Week 2018

The Mozart Week 2018, planned and organized by Maren Hofmeister, opens with a new production of Mozart’s Entführung aus dem Serail, conducted by René Jacobs and staged by Andrea Moses with a selected ensemble of young singers. It is part of the tradition of the Mozart Week to present Mozart’s œuvre from various perspectives and in association with works by other composers. At the Mozart Week 2018 the Vienna Philharmonic will perform together with three conductors: Alain Altinoglu, Robin Ticciati and Valery Gergiev. Several pianists, for instance Daniel Barenboim, Sir András Schiff, Robert Levin, Piotr Anderszewski and David Fray exemplify the different interpretations of Mozart’s music. Other artists appearing at the Mozart Week for the first time include the internationally celebrated soprano Marlis Petersen, the Schumann Quartet, as well as the B’Rock Orchestra together with the young German singer Anna Lucia Richter.

Beginnings of the Mozart Cult

In 1841 the ‘Cathedral Music Association and Mozarteum’ was founded so as to restore the status of music in the city. Of particular importance for the rising Mozart cult was the fact that Mozart’s widow Constanze, as well as his two sons Franz Xaver Wolfgang and Carl Thomas, wholeheartedly supported the association. The exhibition explores the history of the association from its founding in 1841 to the year 1880 when it was separated into the Cathedral Music Association and the International Mozarteum Foundation which still exists today. The association organized various activities which had a major impact on the musical life of the Mozart city and still are, and thus laid the foundation for Salzburg’s worldwide reputation as a cultural city.

Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation

The Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation was founded in 1880 by citizens of the city ofSalzburg and is rooted in the Cathedral Music Association and Mozarteum of 1841. Since then the prime concern of the non-profit organisation has been the person and œuvre of Wolfgang Amadé Mozart. The International Mozarteum Foundation preserves the heritage of the Salzburg-born genius in the two Mozart museums in Salzburg Mozart’s Birthplace and the Mozart Residence



Since 1956 the Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation has organised a series of concerts every January around the time of Mozart’s birthday and the Mozart Week is a major artistic event in the international concert calendar. Soloists, orchestras and ensembles who are internationally renowned for their interpretations of Mozart can be heard during this festival which usually lasts about ten days. For Mozart Year 2006 a new festival entitled Dialogues is taking place in which contemporary artists from the spheres of music, dance, literature and the fine arts analyse Mozart’s life and œuvre.From October to June a concert season is organised.
