Marc Minkowski awarded the Golden Mozart Medal

During the concert with his ensemble Les Musiciens du Louvre on 31 January Marc Minkowski received the Golden Mozart Medal from Johannes Honsig-Erlenburg, president of the Mozarteum Foundation. This is the highest honour to be bestowed by the Mozarteum Foundation in the name of Mozart.  As Johannes Honsig-Erlenburg stated, “Marc Minkowski is one of the outstanding Mozart interpreters of our time, his reading of Mozart’s music touches and moves audiences.” Helga Rabl-Stadler, president of the Salzburg Festival, held the laudatory speech.


Since 2007 Marc Minkowski has performed several times at the Mozart Week.  In 2013 he was appointed artistic director of the Mozart Week.  Minkowski has celebrated great successes here which will long be remembered: for instance the magnificent Idomeneo in 2010, Lucio Silla (2013), with Rolando Villazón in the title role, Gluck’s moving opera Orfeo ed Euridice in 2014, as well as his first and highly acclaimed venture with Bartabas in 2015 and now during this year’s Mozart Week a renewed collaboration with Bartabas for the interpretation of Mozart’s Requiem. And of course the concerts with his ensemble Les Musiciens du Louvre in the Great Hall of the Mozarteum and in the Haus für Mozart, with the Vienna Philharmonic in the Grosses Festspielhaus and his performances with the Mozart Children’s Orchestra.
