Peter Sellars Directs
IDOMENEO for the Screen
This production of Idomeneo sees the return of the powerful tenor Russell Thomas and the incomparable musicAeterna choir. Once again, the rage and desperation of refugees, violence, trauma, unfinished wars and now environmental degradation surge through the beautiful music.
This overwhelming masterpiece by the impatient and supremely gifted young Mozart raises urgent questions related to climate change and its impact on oceans and populations: are we cutting off a future by being in denial about pollution and global warming? Is a younger generation being sacrificed by a previous generation which is refusing to deal with reality in the present tense? Is there a younger generation that is now ready for leadership?

Martin Grubinger rocks the 2019 New Year’s Concert in Salzburg
The symphonic wind orchestra welcomes 2019 with its traditional New Year’s Concert on Jannuary 6th in the Felsenreitschule. This year’s concert’s theme “Sound of the Danubian Monarchy”( “Klang der Donau­monarchie”) stands for wind music of the highest standard, which is synonymous with the Bläserphilharmonie Mozarteum Salzburg.
The repertoire includes waltzes, marches, czardas, polkas, and mazurkas – musical styles from around the Austrian-Hungarian empire which reflect a special kind of multinational identity. The programme also features a percussion concert by the Vienna Philharmonic Bruno Hartl and the world’s leading percussionist Martin Grubinger, “a master of the high-speed chase” (New York Times).
