What better way to celebrate Mozart’s birthday than with the world premiere of one of his compositions? Seong-Jin Cho is set to do just that in the Great Hall of the Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation on 27 January 2021, which is also the opening day of the Foundation’s first virtual Mozartwoche festival. The acclaimed pianist’s performance of the recently rediscovered Allegro in D K626b/16 will be streamed on DG Stage in the context of a full piano and lecture recital including other works by Mozart.
“Like every cultural institution in the world, we are facing enormous challenges right now. But with our digital Mozartwoche programme, the whole world can experience and celebrate Mozart’s genius in ten wonderful concerts, featuring some of the world’s best Mozartians,” comments Rolando Villazón, Artistic Director of the Mozartwoche.
