The Vienna Philharmonic at the Mozart Festival in Salzburg

As has been the custom ever since the founding of the Mozart Festival of the International Foundation Mozarteum in Salzburg in 1956, the Vienna Philharmonic appeared once again at this year's winter Mozart festival, performing three concerts. The Estonian conductor Paavo Järvi, who first appeared with our orchestra on November 29/30, 2006, for concerts in Paris and Cologne, conducted a program on January 25, 2014, comprised of Mozart's Symphony in B-flat major, KV319, and his D major ("Haffner") Symphony, KV 385, along with the "Metamorphosen for Solo Strings" by Richard Strauss, a great admirer of Mozart, and featured Joshua Bell in the Violin Concerto by Johannes Brahms

Mark Minkowski, the Artistic Director of the Mozart Festival, took over the second concert (January 29) in which two works () by the  Estonian composer Arvo Pärt, who was born in 1935, were performed: "Fratres" and "Swan Song, Littlemore tractus for Orchestra" which was the world premiere of a piece commissioned by the International Foundation Mozarteum. Also on the program were Mozart's Serenade in D major, KV250 ("Haffner", with the solo violin part being performed by Rainer Küchl) and the "Four Last Songs" by Richard Strauss, featuring the soprano Soile Isokoski. 

The concluding appearance of the Vienna Philharmonic at this year's Mozart Festival featured the last three Mozart Symphonys (E-Flat major, KV 543; G minor, KV550; and C major, KV551), which Daniel Barenboim conducted in the Large Festival Hall on February 1st.
