Every year in early summer, the prince-bishop's baroque city of Würzburg becomes the city of Mozart - and has been since 1921: a hundred-year festival history! Leading international soloists, ensembles and orchestras meet in a magnificent ambience to celebrate Mozart in 70 top-class concerts. Exclusive orchestra and chamber concerts in the baroque Kaisersaal of the Würzburg Residence and the popular "Nachtmusiken" in the courtyard garden, which is atmospherically illuminated with candles, have been part of the fixed repertoire since the founding year. Diversity is part of the program at the Mozart Festival of the 21st Century, when the “unexpected” series presents musical frontiers relating to Mozart.
