Salzburg Mozart Week online worldwide

Mozart's 265th birthday will be celebrated by the world's greatest Mozart festival and intendant Rolando Villazón with a condensed programme and top-class performers. Selected concerts and the world première of 94 seconds – a new Mozart will be streamed online worldwide.

International streaming offers to mark Mozart’s 265th birthday • A special musical experience: a hitherto unknown Mozart piece; the opening concert; the Mozartiade; Maestro Daniel Barenboim, Cecilia Bartoli and the Vienna Philharmonic; and the legendary duo Martha Argerich and Daniel Barenboim – available in many countries.

 

The digital 2021 Mozart Week combines everything the world’s greatest Mozart festival has stood for since 1956. Large-scale orchestral concerts, select chamber-music gems and special concert formats with top Mozart performers who illuminate the great composer’s manifold cosmos. Regrettably, due to the continuing corona pandemic it will not be possible to perform before live audiences; so Mozart Week, now reduced to five days, will be held online only, from 27 January, Mozart’s birthday. “With the utmost care, we have further condensed the adapted programme and distilled it into a Mozart Week typical in essence and quality of the exceptional nature of this Mozart festival“, says intendant Rolando Villazón. The compact programme breathes the spirit of the original festival motto, showing Mozart as a true musico drammatico in the minor-key works which, like the arias and lieder, tell of great emotions, of love and passion. “I am very much looking forward to presenting the highlights of this year’s Mozart Week to Mozart-lovers the world over, through our co-operation with Unitel and Austrian Broadcasting”, says Villazòn.

 

In the German-speaking world, the digital Mozart Week will be held on the streaming platform myfidelio in close collaboration with ORF and Unitel. All Mozart Week concerts will be broadcast, with two premières each day, and are available in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
