From January 24th until February 3rd the Mozart festival takes places.
This popular music-festival is interpreting mostly music from the famous Salzburg composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Several known orchestras like the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra (George Prêtre), the Camerata Salzburg (Louis Langrée), the Emerson String Quartet, Les Musiciens du Louvre Grenoble (Marc Minkowski) as well as the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment (Sir Simon Rattles) are going to play the music of W.A. Mozart.
Therefore the Mozart festival is the only festival at present that engages with the music of Mozart that much. This year one piece really stands out: the interpretation of Mozarts Drama per musica Lucio silla by Marc Minkowski. As every year, there also will be shows in the historic buildings that Mozart used to live at.
