Concert Season 2017 / 2018
Stiftung Mozarteum Salzburg
Welcome to the Concert Season 2017/18: The program contains innovations and familiar features, concerts in which rising newcomers perform alongside established well-known stars in chamber music. There will be a special focus on the music of Robert Schumann which will be presented in many brilliant facets. You can look forward to the new after work series: the refreshing relaxed form of a concert experience starts at 6.30 p.m. The bar and the garden, where you can enjoy exquisite snacks and drinks, are open for you and your companions from 5.30 p.m. You can then look forward to hearing exciting young performers in the Wiener Saal, who in their approach and direct presentation are not restricted by epochs or styles, and are not bound by rules or convention. Artists appearing in the series include Thomas Enhco and Vassiléna Serfimova, the string duo BartolomeyBittmann, the David Orlowsky Trio and accordion player Ksenija Sidorova.
International artists and ensembles such as Maria João Pires, the Quatuor Modigliani, Il Giardino Armonico conducted by Giovanni Antonini, the Chiaroscuro Quartet, ECHO-Klassik prize-winner Khatia Buniatishvili together with her sister Gvantsa, as well as tenor Mark Padmore accompanied on the piano by Till Fellner can be heard during the coming season in the Great Hall of the Mozarteum.
The Debut series, which was successfully launched last year, will be continued. Promising, talented musicians, including the brothers Lucas and Arthur Jussen (both pianists), the Azahar Ensemble, Quatuor Arod and the pianist Mariam Batsashvili will present themselves for the first time to Salzburg audiences in the intimate surroundings of the Wiener Saal.
As in previous years, the Mozarteum Orchestra Salzburg and the Camerata Salzburg have been invited as guest organizers to use the Foundation's Great Hall for their concert cycles.
