Exhibition and a concert played on Mozart’s original string instruments in Tokyo

The arts world in Japan is at present confronted by a series of cancellations – renowned artists, indeed entire ensembles are unwilling to visit Japan.  The Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation is, in contrast, planning to make a gesture in order to underline the bonds of friendship with many Japanese music-lovers by making a special visit to Tokyo in November 2011.

During the 1990s the insurance company Dai Ichi Mutual Life generously financed the re-building of the Mozart Residence on the Makartplatz; this year the company is celebrating its 110th anniversary. To mark the occasion the Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation is organising two projects in Japan: from 19 to 25 November there will be a public exhibition in the company headquarters.  Gabriele Ramsauer, director of the Mozart Museums who recently returned from a preparatory visit to Japan, explains: “A number of pieces of original Mozart memorabilia, as well as the world famous portrait of Mozart made by Joseph Lange will be on display for the first time outside Europe. 

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart am Klavier. Unvollendetes Ölgemälde von Joseph Lange,  1789

For Japanese research on Mozart the presentation of this original portrait is a major highlight. And for the first time ever Mozart’s original concert violin and his viola will be played in Japan.

Johannes Honsig-Erlenburg, president of the Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation, stresses the close ties with Japan, “The Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation owes much to the Dai Ichi company.  Following the environmental catastrophe in Japan we are planning this visit as a symbol of gratitude and as an expression of our ties with our long-standing partner and sponsor, in particular in difficult times. Therefore we see this visit to Japan with the unique exhibits also as a sign of the bonds of friendship with many Japanese music-lovers.”
