Pushing the envelope

Beyond classical listening habits

Music lives in the here and now. It’s the inspirational interaction that’s exciting. So it’s not infrequently the confrontation, the new formats and contexts, that make music a contemporary art-form and lend it topical resonance. The Mozartfest embraces every opportunity to venture new approaches to Mozart.

Whether with innovative formats, in former factory halls, in a club atmosphere or in conjunction with new media: there are no limits on creativity when it comes to trying out how classical music behaves at interfaces, at changes between times and genres, or interacts with unfamiliar worlds.
