#kleinePauseMozart – the daily Mozart moment from the Mozarteum Foundation Salzburg with interesting facts, background information and live events from the fascinating world of Mozart at home
With #kleinePauseMozart, the Mozarteum Foundation Salzburg reports daily at 11 a.m. from the diverse Mozart cosmos. Since the two Mozart museums and Salzburg’s most beautiful concert halls – the Great Hall and the Vienna Hall – are closed for the time being, the Mozarteum Foundation is now increasingly broadcasting its content digitally to the outside world in order to provide a little distraction during this time with the fascination for Mozart. In keeping with its mission to give all people and generations access to Mozart’s music, his life and his personality, #kleinePauseMozart now offers exciting daily reports, background information and information with which the team of the Mozarteum Foundation presents interesting and worthwhile facts about Mozart online.
On the website mozarteum.at and the social media platform Facebook, the Mozart museums invite you to go on digital explorations. Mozart’s birthplace can soon be explored in virtual walks, and those who did not make it to the successful special exhibition on Leopold Mozart’s 300th birthday last year can do so online. Talks with experts from the Mozarteum Foundation with in-depth explanations of the rich treasure of Mozart’s legacy are planned, as well as readings from letters from the Mozart family and contributions from members of the Mo-zart Children’s Orchestra. For example, the eleven-year-old Leonard Burkali has composed his own canon for washing hands with the unmistakable request “Wosch da d’ Händ! In addition to reports on the international activities of the Mozarteum Foundation and interviews with artists, such as the Dialogues and Mozartwoche festivals, streaming with short concerts by musicians from the living room, such as violinist Benjamin Schmid with his wife, pianist Ariane Haering, or multipercussionist Christoph Sietzen, complete the concept. The klangkarton, the children’s and youth program of the Mozarte-um Foundation, also provides an appealing online offer to participate.
Highlights of the first days are:
Leopold Mozart: Musician – Manager – Man
Virtual tour through the special exhibition of Leopold Mozart in the Mozart residence
Concert director Andreas Fladvad-Geier reads from letters of the Mozart family
On a long journey with the Mozart violin – Museum director Gabriele Ramsauer at the cultural event LvivMozArt in Lviv
The wedding of Figaro – explained with a wink for children & adults
With this series, the Mozarteum Foundation would like to make its contribution to continuing contact and exchange with Mozart friends from all over the world. “Use your keyboard and bring a little Mozart into your four walls! All interested people, young and old alike, are cordially invited to take advantage of the Mozarteum Foundation’s wide range of offers. May they bring you joy and variety in this difficult time for all of us”, says Johannes Honsig-Erlenburg, President of the Mozarteum Foundation Salzburg.
Travel through Mozart’s world with just a few clicks: In addition to the online activities mentioned above, the Digital Mozart Edition of the Mozarteum Foundation is of course also available for an intensive study of Mozart’s oeuvre. On the one hand, the DME presents musical works in new digital formats (DIME – the new Digital Interactive Mozart Edition) for musicians and interested laypeople and is dedicated to the edition of letters and documents, but the libretti and texts of Mozart’s vocal works are also accessible here. The Mozarteum Foundation Salzburg holds about half of all currently known letters and records of the Mozart family and thus has the largest collection of this kind worldwide. The majority of the approximately 700 documents are handwritten documents by Wolfgang Amadé and his father Leo-pold. In addition, there are numerous letters from Constanze Mozart and Mozart’s two sons, Carl Thomas and Franz Xaver Wolfgang. These precious historical letters and documents have been digitized using state-of-the-art technology and placed online. On the other hand, the DME provides information about Mozart’s works and their sources as well as about their delivery and reception.
