THE SALZBURG MOZARTEUM FOUNDATION - ABOUT US

Mozart’s heritage – preservation and contemporary encounters

The Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation is a non-profit organization whose primary focus has been the life and œuvre of Wolfgang Amadé Mozart. The organisation offers concerts [»], maintains the Mozart museums [»] and supports academic research [»]. These three core areas seek not only to preserve and foster tradition but to be open to changing perspectives and consider new approaches when encountering the works of Mozart.

 

Concerts

With the two festivals „Mozart Week“ and „Dialogues“ as well as the chamber music concert series, the Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation is present with concerts throughout the whole year.

Each year around the time of Mozart's birth in January, the Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation hosts the Mozart Week with opera performances and orchestral, chamber, and soloist concerts. World-renowned Mozart interpreters, orchestras, and ensembles are responsible for the unparalleled reputation of this unique event. This week of concerts, which was first held in 1956, invites visitors from around the world to rediscover Mozart's works from ever-changing perspectives and to hear them anew.

Mozart Week [»]

The Dialogues festival was established to celebrate the Mozart Year in 2006. It is primarily aimed at an audience which is open to a controversial, contemporary take on new and classical music. For this purpose, the festival invites contemporary artists from the disciplines of music, dance, literature, fine art, and film. This interdisciplinary approach of the Dialogues festival seeks to move beyond the traditional concert protocol and develop unusual, powerful listening situations.

Dialogues [»]

The Concert Season takes place from October to June and is organized exclusively by the Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation. The audience will be presented with both renowned chamber musicians and 'rising stars' – young instrumental soloists, singers, and ensembles who have already been engaged to perform in leading international venues. With these concerts, the Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation provides a forum for chamber music in Salzburg.

Museums

The Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation preserves the heritage of the Salzburg-born genius in the two Mozart museums (Mozart’s Birthplace and the Mozart Residence), which are two of the main touristic attractions in Salzburg.

Mozart's Birthplace is more than a world-famous memorial to the greatest musical genius of all times. It is a modern museum that makes unique originals accessible in a contemporary context. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born here in 1756 and his life story is told here.

Mozart's Birthplace [»]

The Mozart Residence is more than a museum between tradition and modernity. It is the place where diverse activities related to concerts, research and museums come together. The Mozart family lived here after 1773. - Exhibitions, museum concerts and film screenings take place here.

Research

Tradition, preservation and an orientation towards the future are the three hallmarks of the research program at the Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation.

The collection of autographs contains about 190 original letters by Mozart, about 370 by his father and over 100 autograph manuscripts of Mozart’s music, mainly sketches and drafts but also some original scores. Visits of the autograph vault are limited and only possible for groups with advanced reservation. The Bibliotheca Mozartiana contains about 35,000 titles and is the most extensive Mozart library in the world. Following the Neue Mozart Ausgabe (New Mozart Edition), the complete historic and critical edition of Mozart's works begun in 1954 and completed in June 2007, the Digital Mozart Edition is now being created as the definitive, continuously updated online edition of Mozart's works. It will make the New Mozart Edition freely available on the Internet for users worldwide.

Mozart Institute [»]

The Mozart audio and film collection contains about 26.000 audio titles and 3.300 video productions (film documentaries, plays and television films about Mozart, as well as opera productions) and thus creates a link to the present. Some of the productions are shown to the public during the Mozart Week.
