New management for the Mozarteum Foundation

New management for the Mozarteum Foundation

The Mozarteum Foundation Salzburg has made a decision concerning the new artistic direction and financial management

Under the overall responsibility of Matthias Schulz, as the Director of the Concert Department and Managing Director, the conductor Marc Minkowski will serve as the new Artistic Director of Mozart Week in Salzburg. In so doing, the Mozarteum Foundation Salzburg will pursue a new artistic path after the past years of success, giving the artistic responsibility for the Mozart Week festival in the hands of a distinguished Mozart interpreter. Leaving the overall responsibility under the aegis of the young, experienced concert manager Matthias Schulz guarantees that the Mozarteum Foundation will maintain its openness toward other preeminent Mozart interpreters and its commitment to new music.

Beyond his activity as Artistic Director of Mozart Week, Marc Minkowski will be present in Salzburg over the course of the entire season with diverse projects, representing the Mozarteum Foundation in Salzburg.

The first Mozart Week being programmed under the new direction will take place in January 2013. Matthias Schulz and Marc Minkowski commence their duties on March 1, 2012. The necessity to seek a new direction of the Mozarteum Foundation arose due to the fact that Dr. Stephan Pauly (artistic director and general manager of the Mozarteum Foundation) will be leaving the Mozarteum Foundation and be assuming the office as artistic director of the concert hall Alte Oper in Frankfurt, starting March 1, 2012.

Marc Minkowski commented on his appointment: “To be asked to assume the artistic direction of Mozart Week, a festival I know very well and which invited me through all of last years as a guest, fills me with pride and great joy—yet even more with impatience: I don’t consider this appointment to be a confirmation of my work of the last years but rather as a challenge for the artistic work of the future.”

On the occasion of his appointment, Matthias Schulz stated that “it is a fantastic challenge to assume the responsibility in financial and artistic affairs of the most important institution dedicated to Mozart’s genius in Mozart’s native city.”

Dr. Johannes Honsig-Erlenburg, the president of the Mozarteum Foundation, summed up the executive committee’s decision on the new direction of the Mozarteum Foundation as follows: “We are very happy we were able to convince Marc Minkowski to be the Artistic Director of Mozartwoche and we hope that his very special approach to Mozart will touch and move not just the attendees from here and abroad of our Mozart Week but generally all friends of the Mozarteum Foundation. We have a young leadership personality in the person of Matthias Schulz, a man who will continue to refine and deepen the profile of the Mozarteum Foundation in close conjunction with the Head of our museums and our Director of the research department.”

The Mozarteum Foundation Salzburg harkens back directly to Mozart’s heirs and is dedicated to the person and oeuvre of Wolfgang Amadé Mozart. Its objective is to open up changing perspectives and new ways of thinking in the discussion concerning the composer. With initiatives in the three core areas of concerts, museums and musicology, it builds a bridge from preservation of tradition to contemporary culture. Every year in January, the Mozarteum Foundation sets a new artistic highlight in the international concert life with its “Mozart Week” festival. Globally renowned Mozart interpreters, orchestras and ensembles can be experienced during the festival week. Within the scope of the contemporary “Dialogues” festival, artists from the sectors of music, dance, literature and film create a new listening experience during the two annual festival blocks. The Mozarteum Foundation preserves the heritage of the Salzburg genius in the Mozart museums (Mozart’s birthplace and Mozart’s Residence), two of the most important sights in Salzburg. In the area of research, among other things, the Foundation is responsible for the publication of the complete works of Mozart (New Mozart Edition), which is also available, free of charge, on the Internet for downloading (Digital Mozart Edition at www.mozarteum.at
