Settimana Mozartiana in Rovereto 13–17 September 2017

At the invitation of the umbrella organization of over forty Mozart Societies in Italy, the Associazione Mozart Italia, Dr Thomas Bodmer (executive committee) and Dr Iacopo Cividini (research) attended the 2017 Settimana Mozartiana between 13 and 15 September. The Settimana Mozartiana is a week-long festival held in Rovereto and the surrounding area and features events related to Mozart’s life and music.

At the opening of the exhibition on the subject of “The Lodron Family and Mozart” in the Villa Lagarina, Dr Bodmer, speaking on behalf of the president of the Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation, Dr Honsig-Erlenburg, reaffirmed the close and long-standing relations between the Associazione Mozart Italia and Salzburg and stressed the importance of the contribution made by Mozart Societies in general and by Italian members in particular. Their numerous activities are vital for cultivating Mozart’s legacy all over the world. The following day Dr Cividini visited the offices of the Associazione Mozart Italia in Rovereto and spoke with its president, Arnaldo Volani. Together they discussed the Associazione’s activities, concerns and possible joint projects.

A meeting of Mozart Societies from all over the world will take place, as it does every year, during the 2018 Mozart Week Festival. In 2018 it will be held on 27 January in the Viennese Hall at the Mozarteum Foundation.

 

 

Work Meeting of the Mozart Communities 2017

On 28 January 2017, the annual meeting of the Mozart communities took place. This year, we had to celebrate even two jubilee of Mozart communities.

25 Years Saxon Mozart Society

On behalf of Franz Streuber, President of the Saxon Mozart Society, Rita Hoffmann, a member of the Executive Board, gave a summary of the beginnings, activities and perspectives of the Saxon Mozart Society. The youth project “100 Mozartkinder”, which serves to promote one hundred children by 2018, plays a special role; it is was therefore particularly pleasing that some young students, together with their tutors, had prepared an interactive presentation to give visitors impressions of their work. Hoffmann's paper was musically enriched by performances at the piano by two scholarship holders of the Saxon Mozart Society, 11-year-old Ben Lepetit and 18-year-old Annegret Neumann who received great acclaim for their interpretation.

90 Years Mozart Society in Prague

On the occasion of the 90th anniversary of the Mozart Society of the Czech Republic (Mozartova obec v České republice), president Tomislav Volek and the director Milada Jonášová attended the meeting of the Mozart communities to discuss the history of the Mozart Society and related current challenges, in particular with regard to the preservation of Villa Bertramka. Thomas Bodmer emphasized that the Mozarteum Foundation in Salzburg, which for a while had been the owner of the building, feels strongly obliged to stop the decline of Villa Bertramka, one of the most important original Mozart sites. Additionally, Tomislav Volek, together with Mr. Hans Ernst Weidinger, representing Hollitzer Wissenschaftsverlag, presented Volek’s latest publication Mozart, die italienische Oper des 18. Jahrhunderts und das musikalische Leben im Königreich Böhmen, a summary of decades of research.

A total of approximately 70 visitors from 10 countries participated in the meeting of the Mozart communities, to get to know each other, to get together and to attend other events of the Mozart Week.
