Tonight, Cecilia Bartoli presents her new album St. Petersburg at Vienna’s Konzerthaus, and already it promises to break sales records.

Today, the Festival leadership and Cecilia Bartoli announce their further cooperation starting with the artistic directorship of Markus Hinterhäuser in 2017.

Masters and servants, the powerful and the powerless, oppression and protest – these binary oppositions provide the themes of the opera and drama programmes of the Festival in 2015. Reconciling people to that inequality – which is reflected not only in wealth and poverty, liberty and constraint, but which determines all social conditions, even the most personal of relationships – appears to have been a challenge as urgent as it is insoluble throughout the ages.

The 2015 Concert Programme

Designing a concert programme is like weaving. Like a textile’s warp, there are given constants that create structure. In our case, these are the traditional series featuring the Vienna Philharmonic, the series of guest orchestras, Salzburg’s Mozarteum Orchestra, the Salzburg Camerata, great soloists and song recitalists of our times, intriguing chamber music formations and the most interesting performers of New Music – every year, we weave all of these into new patterns with other weft threads. Many of these threads take their origin in the Ouverture spirituelle and give rise to other series in their own right.

Review of The Opera and Concert Programme 2014

published in: Opera, Concert, General

The 94th edition of the Salzburg Festival began with a highly atmospheric, sold-out Ouverture spirituelle. The overwhelming rendition of the Vespro della Beata Vergine by John Eliot Gardiner at the Cathedral and the concert featuring Mozart’s final symphonies with Nikolaus Harnoncourt were early highlights of an immensely successful Festival season which attracted more than 270,000 guests.

The Theatre Programme 2014 Reflected World War I

One hundred years after the outbreak of World War I, commemoration was indicated by the history of the Festival’s founding itself. In 1917, Max Reinhardt wrote in his founding manifesto: “Art, especially theatrical art, has not only held its own during the ravages of this war, but it has proven that its existence and maintenance are among the most indispensable necessities.” Sven-Eric Bechtolf’s drama programme was devoted almost entirely to the outbreak of the First World War, 100 years ago.
