Rolando Villazón has been appointed artistic director of the International Mozarteum Foundation for five more years

Our journey through the world of Mozart is continuing, its success assured by the appointment of Rolando Villazón as artistic director of the International Mozarteum Foundation for a further five years. Villazón has been responsible for running the Mozart Week Festival since 2019, taking over as overall artistic director of the International Mozarteum Foundation in the summer of 2021.


Rolando Villazón will run both the Mozart Week Festival and the Mozarteum’s concert programme until 2028. “I am glad that I can continue to develop my ideas for the Mozarteum Foundation,” says Villazón, looking forward to the years ahead. “During the pandemic there was a lot that we were unable to do and only now can we make up for some of these losses. My team and I are eager for action and are full of ideas on ways of throwing fresh and exciting light on Mozart’s vibrant musical cosmos.”
