Sujet Mozartwoche 2022 im Querformat

Mozart Week 2022

"String theory" in practice: the world's principal Mozart festival celebrates the great composer's works for strings.

Rolando Villazón’s fourth Mozart Week offers a wide range of concerts and events focusing on Mozart’s works for strings. A hand-picked selection of today’s most distinguished Mozart interpreters will present the whole spectrum of Mozart’s œuvre. A delighted Villazón beams: „Right on the birthday of the best-loved composer of all time, the 2022 Mozart Week will once more appear in all its glory before live audiences.“ He continues: „After the huge challenges we have all faced in recent times, we can hardly wait to perform Mozart’s brilliant music again for our audiences in the concert halls.“


True to its motto „pure Mozart“, the 2022 festival once again plunges deep into the Mozart cosmos, combining the expressive media of music, spoken word, drama, pantomime, dance and puppetry (of which Wolfgang Amadé was very fond), in order to present his brilliant versatility. In the coming year, the world’s principal Mozart festival offers over 60 events including concert or semi-staged opera performances, orchestral concerts, chamber music, mime theatre, films, talks and much more. In January 2022, world-famous classical performers such as Anne-Sophie Mutter, Martha Argerich, Mitsuko Uchida, Midori Seiler, Christina Pluhar, Daniel Barenboim, Ivor Bolton, François Leleux, Jordi Savall, Sir András Schiff, Rainer Honeck, Riccardo Minasi and of course the Vienna Philharmonic, as well as celebrated stars of the younger generation such as Lisa Batiashvili, Janine Jansen, Robin Ticciati and Emmanuel Tjeknavorian will come to Salzburg for the first festival of the year.
