Beyond classical listening habits

Music lives in the here and now. It is the inspirational interaction that’s exciting. So it’s not infrequently the confrontation, the new formats and contexts, that lend music a topical resonance. The Mozartfest embraces every opportunity to venture new approaches to Mozart. »Unexpected« is the name we have given to a new series of concerts which transcend boundaries, presenting hitherto unheard sounds and fresh aural treats. Young top-ranking ensembles challenge familiar listening habits and invite the audience to discover a new way of listening to and enjoying music.

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