Review of the Festival DIALOGE
The Dialoge Festival was launched on the occasion of the Mozart Year 2006. Its main aim is to address an audience that is open to an examination of new and classical music. The festival invites contemporary artists from the disciplines of music, dance, literature, visual arts and film. The interdisciplinary programming of the Dialogues seeks to break down the traditional concert protocol and develop new, powerful listening situations.
The DIALOGE took place in 2019 under the direction of Andreas Fladvad-Geier. Due to the pandemic, the 2020 festival was moved to the internet under the motto “Insight Sounds”. After that, the DIALOGE took a two-year break.
“We are particularly pleased that contemporary music will return to our programme in the dialogue format in 2023!” says Rolando Villazón, Artistic Director of the International Mozarteum Foundation. Under the motto “Mozart meets modernity”, we will celebrate contemporary music in conjunction with Mozart from 16 to 18 June 2023, thus providing a grand finale to the 2022/2023 concert season.
Review of past DIALOGE festivals
The DIALOGE festival stands for crossing genre boundaries, for new concert formats and unusual constellations in the premises of the Mozarteum. Music, dance, literature, rock, lounge or art installations – everything finds its place here.
