The participation of the Mozarteum Orchestra Salzburg at the Festival has a long history: as early as 1921, members of the Mozarteum Orchestra gave the first orchestral concerts together with members of the Vienna State Opera Orchestra. Since 1949 it has performed the Mozart Matinees initiated by Bernhard Paumgartner. In 2022 Andrew Manze, Riccardo Minasi, Ádám Fischer, Joana Mallwitz and Ivor Bolton will lead the Mozarteum Orchestra in Mozart Matinees. The celebrated conductor of Così fan tutte in 2020 and 2021 and conductor of Die Zauberflöte in 2022, Joana Mallwitz, leads the orchestra from Salzburg for the first time. The first Mozart Matinee takes place under Andrew Manze’s baton during the Ouverture spirituelle. In addition to the offertory Misericordias Domini and the Ave verum corpus by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Joseph Haydn’s Symphony in D minor “Lamentatione” and his Stabat mater will be heard. The Chorus sine nomine will make its Salzburg Festival debut in this Mozart Matinee.
