For the first time in the history of the Salzburg Festival, Mozart’s complete Da Ponte cycle can be heard this year.

In 1760, encouraged by the Edinburgh literati, the Gaelic- speaking Highlander, James Macpherson (1736–96), published his Fragments of Ancient Poetry, collected in the Highlands of Scotland, and translated from the Galic or Erse language.
