Program Facets

Every year, in early summer, the baroque Prince-Bishop’s city of Würzburg has turned into »Mozart City« – ever since 1921. Drawing from a plentiful wellspring of tradition, the Mozartfest is dedicated to preserving and mediating Wolfgang Amadé Mozart’s works and creating a platform for a contemporary engagement with his music. Classical concerts featuring symphonic, vocal or chamber music are spotlighted in around 70 events a year. Diversity is not a mere buzzword here, but an experientially embraced programme. The Würzburg Residenz, a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site, churches, monasteries, wineries, palace gardens or industrial monuments are the stages for a multi-faceted cornucopia of events in which the focus is on shared appreciation and exploring aural sublimities.
