At Whitsun 2024, Cecilia Bartoli, the Artistic Director of the Salzburg Whitsun Festival, presents a homage to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s oeuvre under the motto “Tutto Mozart”. She describes this year’s programme as follows:
“To think about the amount of marvellous music Mozart created in an unbelievably short space of time reduces us to awe and humble silence. He created a universe, a world of its own which gives us endless pleasure. It may surprise you that since taking on the position of artistic director at the Salzburg Whitsun Festival in 2012, I have never focussed on Mozart here. So I thought ‘wenn schon, denn schon’ (‘If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well’), and decided to dedicate four exceptional days to my favourite composer, with humour and Mozartkugeln included. Because more than anything, I would like to transmit the joy of singing, performing and listening to Mozart’s music.
