Mozarteum Foundation Salzburg

Start of the 2013/14 Concert Season

05 September 2013 Events

The summer slowly fades away and anticipation for the autumn concert season grows – this happens every year at the Mozarteum Salzburg Foundation. This year’s concert season starts on September 24, 2013 and is all about chamber music. “Room with a view” is the unofficial motto, demonstrating the diverse musical programme in the picturesque city of Salzburg. Performing the best chamber music has always been a significant goal of the Mozarteum Foundation Salzburg. According to the Mozarteum Foundation Salzburg, chamber music is the musical equivalent of daily bread. This rings true, as true music aficionados would feel famished without these exquisite small concerts.

There is much to look forward to. This year, a diverse programme will enchant lovers of classical music. There will be three concert cycles: 10 concerts of chamber music in the Great Concert Hall, six concerts of chamber music in the Viennese Hall, and four “Vienna-Berlin” Sunday matinees in the Great Concert Hall. One focus will be on the works of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the other on the works of Peter Tchaikovsky.

Exciting interpretations and international flair…

… are assured from world renowned pianists Martin Stadtfeld, Krystian Zimerman, Maria João Pires, Lars Vogt and the young Evgeni Bozhanov. Violin virtuosos Pekka Kuusisto, Carolin Widmann and Michael Barenboim are also certain to thrill audiences. Recitals by Matthias Goerne (accompanied by Alexander Schamlcz), as well as concerts by the renowned Stadler Quartet, the Hyperion Ensemble and the local Mozarteum Quartet complement the programme. Fruitful cooperation with chamber music festivals in Lockenhaus, Austria and Jerusalem, Israel - among others - guarantee international flair.

Organ Plus – how about that certain extra something?

For those who appreciate the organ as much as the piano and the violin, there is a special treat in the 2013/14 Concert Season: “Organ Plus”. This consists of three organ concerts with a diverse repertoire performed by various musicians. You will hear students from the organ class and the unconventional organ virtuoso Cameron Carpenter on the Prompter Homines Organ. This is a musical highlight you should not miss!
