Ever since the inauguration of the International Foundation Mozarteum's Mozart Week in Salzburg in 1956, it has been a permanent engagement on the yearly calendar of the Vienna Philharmonic. The first of this year's three concerts in the large Festival Hall took place on January 28th and was conducted by Pierre Boulez, an honorary member of the Vienna Philharmonic. Mitsuko Uchida contrasted Mozart's Concerto in F major, KV 459 with the Piano Concerto, op. 42, by Arnold Schönberg. The evening was opened with Schönberg's "Begleitungsmusik zu einer Lichtspielszene", op. 34 (with Rainer Keuschnig on piano). The concert concluded with "Pulcinella Suite" by Igor Stravinsky.
On Februar 1st, Ivan Fischer conducted a program consisting exclusively of works of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Following the Serenade in D major, KV 239 ("Serenata Notturna") with Rainer Honeck, Christoph Koncz, Tobias Lea and Herbert Mayr comprising the solo quartet, Radu Lupu performed the Piano Concerto in B-flat major, KV 595, which Mozart completed in the year of his death on January 5, 1791. The March in D major, KV 335 (320a), No. 1, composed in 1779, was followed by the Symphony in D major, KV 504 ("Prague").
The conductor and soloist for the third concert on February 4th was Daniel Barenboim, who also combined Mozart and Schönberg. Between the piano concertos in D major, KV 537 ("Coronation Concerto"; with the cadenza in the first movement by Wanda Landowska) and the C minor, KV 491 (cadenza in the first movement by Daniel Barenboim), he conducted the Chamber Symphony for 15 Solo Instruments, op. 9. The performers were Rainer Honeck, Christoph Koncz, Tobias Lea, Franz Bartolomey, Ödön Rácz, Dieter Flury, Martin Gabriel, Wolfgang Plank (Oboe, Vienna State Opera Orchestra), Ernst Ottensamer, Johann Hindler, Andreas Wieser, Stepan Turnovsky, Benedikt Dinkhauser, Lars Michael Stransky and Jan Jankovic.
