All in one

In 2021, Mozartfest Würzburg celebrated its 100th anniversary. 2022 now marks a new start, the beginning of a new century in the event’s history. We will, of course, continue to explore Mozart in all his ambivalence, to forge connections between his work and the present day. He has always been our source of inspirational input, and that will not change. A festival can only retain relevance if it addresses topical issues, or – as Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier put it in his 2021 opening speech in Würzburg – if it never stops trying »to save the classics from their worst enemy: the inviolable status of a museum piece«.

As befits such a new start, in 2022 we will be focusing on our musical present. Mozart would surely have expected us to do so. He was a freethinker in two ways: in his soul, because he pursued his own artistic avenues at all times, and in his behaviour, because he opposed social conventions. His music has always embodied both provocation and fascination, both consummate perfection and chaos. »All in one: The freethinker Mozart« is the motto of the Mozartfest 2022. You are most welcome!
