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.

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
