Where the music of the 20th and 21st centuries is concerned, we have made a conscious decision not to highlight one individual composer – not without regrets, it must be said. However, we consider it important to revisit the many great composers whose music has had a significant impact on the Mozart week over the past few years, thereby confirming us in our choice of Johannes Maria Staud, Arvo Pärt, Elliott Carter and Henri Dutilleux. (Marc Minkowski [&] Matthias Schulz)
This year’s Mozart Week runs from 26 January until 5 February in Salzburg. UE highlights will be performances of Johannes Maria Staud’s Lagrein, Sydenham Music and Fugu as well as performances of selected works by Arvo Pärt.
