Andreas Fladvad-Geier heads up the season’s concerts and the Dialogues Festival

Andreas Fladvad-Geier, currently senior manager for opera and ballet at the Baden-Baden festival theatre, will take up his new position in Salzburg on 1 July 2018. He will be responsible for planning and organisation of the concert season, for the “Dialogues” contemporary music festival and for the development of all artistic activities relating to the Mozartwoche festival. Andreas Fladvad-Geier will support the director of the Mozartwoche, Rolando Villazón, in the years to come in the staging and organisation of the festival’s extensive events.

President Johannes Honsig-Erlenburg declared himself delighted that this new and outstanding team would be taking responsibility for the artistic needs of Stiftung Mozarteum in future: “We found Andreas Fladvad-Geier, a creative, highly experienced and thoroughly professional concert manager, following a very intensive selection process. This means that in the current season the artistic future of the Stiftung Mozarteum is assured.”

Andreas Fladvad-Geier replied by saying: “I am very pleased that the special Salzburg combination of tradition and innovation continues, and I am delighted that Stiftung Mozarteum has placed its trust in me by offering me such a responsible post in its fantastic team.”

“I have known Andreas for many years, having worked with him as a singer and director in Baden-Baden and we know each other very well as a result. Andreas has lots of energy, an enormous wealth of repertoire knowledge and much experience. He will be a real asset in the Stiftung Mozarteum team. I am really, really, really pleased to be able to work with him now in Salzburg,” added Rolando Villazón.
