For the first time ever…
Mozart's original instruments travel to the United States!

Successful guest performances on Mozart’s own original instruments in Boston and New York

In June 2013 the Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation presented Mozart’s original instruments – his violin and his viola – in the USA for the first time. The concerts in Boston and New York, the exhibition during the Boston Early Music Festival and the related lectures aroused enormous interest.  This presentation underlines the Mozarteum Foundation’s commitment in preserving Mozart’s heritage and also in making an active contribution to topical cultural events as well as expanding international relations.

Concert, exhibition and lecture at the Boston Early Music Festival

Amandine Beyer, one of today’s leading Baroque violinists, together with Miloš Valent played works by Mozart on his original instruments during the Boston Early Music Festival in the completely sold out Jordan Hall of the New England Conservatory.  The musical presentation was accompanied by an introductory lecture given by the academic director of the Mozarteum Foundation, Ulrich Leisinger, to an audience of hundreds of music-lovers. The enthusiastic festival-goers were also able to view the instruments in close-up during a special exhibition on historic instruments. Gabriele Ramsauer, director of the Mozart Museums, answered a great variety of questions about the instruments and was highly impressed about the extraordinary interest and knowledge shown by the visitors.

The presentation in Boston was continued in the exclusive Somerset Club, one of the most traditional associations of its kind, and at WGBH Boston Public Radio in connection with a national broadcast.

As Johannes Honsig-Erlenburg, president of the Mozarteum Foundation, stated, “the Americans showed phenomenal interest in the instruments, and the emotional reception was overwhelming.  The Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation ensures that an authentic image of Mozart is conveyed, where there is no room for clichés.”

Concert on Mozart’s violin in the Austrian Cultural Forum

Violinist and composer David Fulmer played one of his own compositions and a work by Matthias Pintscher on Mozart’s violin in the architecturally impressive Austrian Cultural Forum in New York. The efforts by the Mozarteum Foundation to relate Mozart’s heritage to our time were particularly audible and visible in this performance for about 70 invited Mozart enthusiasts and select journalists.  The announcement of this concert was supported by a broadcast on WQXR New York Public Radio.

“It was truly astonishing to see what power Mozart’s original instruments can generate. The justification for this international exchange becomes particularly clear when this occurs with such wonderful artists in places such as the Jordan Hall and the Austrian Cultural Forum”, stated Matthias Schulz, executive manager and artistic director of the Mozarteum Foundation.
