Vivaldi Four Seasons

From early on Vivaldi regularly experimented with extra-musical programs. In his greatest work The Four Seasons one can find mainly natural phenomena: gentle winds, violent storms, thunderstorms and breaking ice occur in all four concert pieces. Also various bird songs, a dog, the tumult of a hunting party, a peasants dance.

The Orchestra 1756

Mozart’s 250th birthday was used as an opportunity to found the Orchestra 1756 in 2006. The ensemble devotes itself to the interpretation of music between 1750 and 1800. The unique Mozart sound originates from intensive occupation with the stylistics of the 18th century, historic instruments and balanced formations of musicians.

The Choir of Salzburger Konzertgesellschaft demands responsibility and quality from every single member. Depending on the repertoire the chorus consists of 16 to 24 singers. They are chosen through strict annual auditions. Both Orchestra 1756 and Chorus are submitted to strict stylistic criteria.
