Salzburg Festival: Mozart Masterpieces

From 18 July to 31 August 2014, Salzburg will once again host its world-famous festival. In the few weeks during which the rich, beautiful and socialites meet in the city on the Salzach, quite a large personality will also be ever-present: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Without him, the Salzburg Festival wouldn’t be much of anything...

The 26th International Haydn Days in Eisenstadt, or, the Special Relationship Between Two World-Famous Composers

When the 26th International Haydn Days take place in Eisenstadt – the capital of the Austrian state Burgenland – in September 2014, you can count not only on musical pleasure at its finest. This year, director Walter Reicher had the idea to musically revive the close friendship between Joseph Haydn and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and give their heavily mutually influenced work a special stage.

Don Giovanni Down Under

In summer of 2014, Don Giovanni will once again be up to his mischief: from 25 July to 30 August at the Sydney Opera House’s Joan Sutherland Theatre, a new Don Giovanni production will bring the renowned drama dealing with the insatiable seducer a little closer to the audience in a perplexing, highly psychologically complex production. It’s time to start getting excited.

A Voice that is Out of This World

Mozart originally wrote the roles of Sesto in "La Clemenza di Tito" (The Clemency of Titus) and Idamante in "Idomeneo" for castrato voices. The Argentinian countertenor Franco Fagioli will be singing both roles: on 29 April at the Opéra National de Lorraine in Nancy – as Sesto – and on 3 November at the Royal Opera House in London – as Idamante. This is quite interesting and in no way a given, considering castrato roles today are mostly performed by women.

A Voice that is Out of This World
23 April 2014 Events
In the Baroque era, castratos were sought-after singers. Mozart appreciated the "unearthly voices" of these men who were castrated before puberty to retain their clear, high, childlike voices. He often wrote special parts for castratos in his operas, i...

The Facial Features of a Master

About 150 years after Mozart’s death, a bronze mask with Mozart’s facial features appeared in a Viennese used goods store. It was identified as the composer’s missing death mask. Is it real? Who made it? Where had it been all these years? In 1991, musicologist Eva Badura-Skoda wrote an article on this topic for the official catalogue of the Austrian National Library’s Department of Music which we were allowed to use as the foundation of this blog entry.

Thus Spake Mozart: Quotations Part 3

Mozart was an extremely prolific correspondent. He loved to indulge in long, detailed and very exact descriptions and explanations. His surviving letters provide interesting insights into his relationships, his marriage with Konstanze Mozart, his triumphs and failures in his career, his views and opinions and his private life. When it came to the recipient, his father Leopold Mozart was second only to his wife – to whom he wrote most of his letters while travelling.

High Culture for Easter in Austria: Salzburg Easter Festival 2014

Three great composers stand in the lime-light of the Salzburg Easter Festival this year: the contemporary and extremely prolific Wolfgang Rihm, the birthday child Richard Strauss, and someone who simply could not be absent at a festival of such artistic calibre, especially not in Salzburg: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

08 April 2014 Events
Admittedly, Mozart is not ranked in first position in this list. But there is no getting away from the musical genius in Salzburg, especially since Richard Strauss - who was born in Munich in 1864 - was a great admirer of his work. Christian Thielemann...

Figaro with Greek Temperament

A fantastic perfectionist, visionary, irreverent rebel and genius – this is how the media celebrate the shooting-star conductor, pop-star with a baton, “band leader” of the Russian ensemble Musica Aeterna at the opera and ballet theatre Perm: the Greek, Teodor Currentzis. The unconventional conductor has taken “The Marriage of Figaro” under scrutiny and presents the opera in a completely new guise. The result is a trilogy of CDs, published by Sony in mid February 2014.

Komische Oper Berlin: the Merry Month of May with Mozart

The month of May is widely known as the month of love. The Komische Oper opera house celebrates the month of romance with Mozart. The renowned opera house has been dedicating the month of May to one of the greatest composers of all time for years and affectionately calls this time “Mozart-May”. Perhaps because Mozart spent his only time in the German capital in May?

Thus Spake Mozart… Mozart Quotations Part II

Did you know that the society of Salzburg in Mozart’s time was not as sophisticated and polite as we are led to believe? Bawdy pranks, rude cussing and a less than polite tone in conversation were daily occurrences. The Mozart family was no exception to this, and some surviving quotations by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart make us chuckle or blush when we hear them today.

Mozart and Carnival Time

Mozart loved carnival. And dance. During his lifetime he composed numerous pieces of dance music – on several occasions for the Imperial Austrian masked balls during the Viennese carnival. Carnival at the time of Mozart, however, was very different from today – and these ornate balls followed very strict rules of conduct.

A “New” Don Giovanni Sends the Audience of London Raving

The ruthless seducer of women and his erotic adventures experience a sublime revival at the Royal Opera House this February. The new production by Kasper Holten, director of the most important stage in Great Britain, is an incredible box-office hit. And again we get to see the fascination of evil – and how boring the forces of good can be.

Grab your headphones – and here we go!

It is a well known fact that music has a beneficial effect on performance in sports activities. Music gets you in the right spirit, motivates and “gets the juices flowing”. Even the ancient Romans used drummers to “encourage” galley slaves to row faster. In the modern age, Xavier Naidoo motivated the German national football team with his music during the world championship in 2006. It is no surprise that many modern athletes legally “dope” themselves with classical music to enhance their performance.

Meditating with Mozart – far from the big opera stages of the world

Opera houses, concert halls, open air stages – many people automatically draw a connection between the music of Mozart and grandiose venues. An unforgettable experience without question. But also by far not the only approach to the work of the musical genius. Why not approach Mozart at home, without a dinner jacket or formal dress – during a meditation for instance?

Inconceivable: A World without Mozart

January 27th is the birthday of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – the musical genius who came into this world 258 years ago on a freezing winter day in Salzburg, and who would shape musical history like no musician before or after him.

Mozart Week January 23rd – February 2nd, 2014

We celebrate the anniversary of Mozart’s birth for the 258th time on January 27th, 2014 – maybe not a “round” anniversary, but Mozart would not have minded at all. The people of Salzburg think that every anniversary of Mozart’s birthday is equally important; therefore, the International Mozarteum Foundation hosts the annual Mozart Week to commemorate the work of the great musical genius. However, two other great composers actually do celebrate “round” anniversaries in 2014: it is Christoph Willibald Gluck’s 300th and Richard Strauss’s 150th anniversary – and both composers find themselves in the limelight during Mozart Week.

In the time of Mozart’s youth – the second half of the 18th century – Christmas was most certainly one of the most important holidays in Catholic Salzburg.
