The orchestra 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.

THE SOUND OF OUR ORCHESTRA

 

The term refers to a largely occupied instrumental ensemble, where the individual voices are occupied several times. Depending on the size and composition, there are symphony and chamber orchestras. Furthermore, one can still distinguish an orchestra through their instruments, such as, inter alia, a string and a wind orchestra. The “Salzburg Mozart Players” are playing in the so-called score instrumentation in which the strings are soloistically occupied, which requires great solo skills of each musician. Most of the time, a classical orchestra is scored for strings and winds, and as appropriate, other instruments may be added, such as percussion, harp or piano.

MOZART’S MASTERPIECES

 

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.
