Chamber music not as a luxury article, but as basic need: colourfully diverse, sometimes challenging, sometimes entertaining, invariably ground-breaking, never boring and always essential to our lives, all qualities that we hope our audiences, too, will find exemplified in the work of our musicians in recital after recital.
Andreas Fladvad-Geier welcomes you to the Concert Season 2019/20!
After just under a year, Salzburg has already become my second home; Salzburg artists form an important backbone of our new season. Above all Benjamin Schmid, who will continue to show all his artistic facets in the coming years. With the young Salzburg cellist Julia Hagen or the Amatis Piano Trio, which Salzburg and the University Mozarteum have given their very special stamp to, we are also introducing the next generation.
It is important to us to present up-and-coming young musicians. The sound worlds opened by trumpeter Tamás Pálfalvi or Swedish clarinettist Magnus Holmander must be experienced. Among the pianists, Max Kromer and the Jussen brothers, this time in the Great Hall, stand for a new generation. But in particular we would like to invite you to discover the stars of the day after tomorrow with us: Our opening concert on 26 September will be held under the motto "the Winner is..." and will gather international competition winners.
Our new series with selected song recitals is a special concern for me. It is amazing how many great singers love this small, fine form and we would like to present it to you in all its facets.
We would like to take this opportunity to express our special thanks to the many colleagues at the Mozarteum Foundation - we work together every day to put art at the centre of our lives and to make it a sensual experience for you.
