Salzburg Photos: Mozart Memorial
return to "winter photos"
The Mozart memorial at the centre of Salzburg
(on Mozartplatz), looking bleak and
boring. In fact, Mozart plays a minor role in the musical activities at
Christmas: Noteworthy cultural events of the winter include the Salzburger
Adventsingen, which is done in traditional costumes and is more of a folk
culture event than Classical Music; smaller
concerts and musical performances
are generally rather of the folkish kind, too. And even the Salzburg Easter
Festival, the first big music event after winter is primarily dedicated to
Baroque music, with Mozart playing only a minor role. All that doesn't harm the
great man of Salzburg at all: He is omni-present all year round, be it in
merchandising or in the touristy concerts that are held in various locations of
Salzburg every day.
