During a reception following a concert on January 28, 2015, in the state rooms of the former royal residence in Salzburg, the former Philharmonic leadership duo of Clemens Hellsberg (chairman) and Dieter Flury (business manager), was awarded the Mozart Medal of Silver of the International Mozart Foundation.

President Dr. Johannes Honsig-Erlenburg and DVwt, Mattias Schulz, the foundation's manager and artistic director, presented both musicians individually with a medal that was not only engraved with their names but which also contained the latin hexameter: "PRO MERTIS VULTUM MOZARTI SUME LIBENTER", - "For (your) service, receive the countenance of Mozart with joy".
