IN THE SERVICE OF MOZART
The Salzburg Mozart Ensemble is composed of members of the Salzburg Orchestra Soloists. The motto of this ensemble is “Great music in a small ensemble”. They play based on the score instrumention, which causes a special sound of orchestral works. The ensemble is regular guest at the Salzburg Festival, the Mozarteum Salzburg, the Brucknerhaus Linz and is regularly on tour throughout Europe. The ensemble is composed of professional orchestral musicians from the city of Salzburg, ensuring a concert at the highest level that will be remembered for a long time.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart wrote his compositions in a very sophisticated and demanding orchestral writing, what differed his compositions from those of his contemporaries. In particular, the winds obtained by a previously unknown self-reliance. Associated with this, the length and the girth of the individual works also increased, most clearly to be seen in his symphonies. The same is also observed in the works of his contemporary Joseph Haydn. On the basis of Mozart’s compositional techniques and styles, he created works of great complexity and significant style, thanks to his unique creative skills.
