Mozart Festival

salzburg

The Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation was formed in the late 1800s to further the study of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s life and work. In 1956, the Foundation began presenting concerts in a yearly festival that begins on December 5 (the anniversary of Mozart’s death) with the Requiem. During our week-long broadcast of The Mozart Festival you’ll hear highlights from the year’s festival, artist interviews and behind-the-scenes features that take you for a close-up look at original manuscripts and letters by Mozart, for a visit to a cafĂ© frequented by the Mozart family, and a revealing look at original portraits of Mozart. Join The Mozart Festival this week at 8pm.
