One of the highlights of the 1956 Mozart Week was the concert which brought together Herbert von Karajan, Clara Haskil and the Philharmonia Orchestra. Karajan knew how to project the qualities of the orchestra using the pieces he selected. The slow introduction of the Symphony No.39 gave him an early opportunity to demonstrate the precision and aural splendour of the orchestra.

Those listening to the Piano Concerto No.20 experienced an enchanting hour with Clara Haskil at the piano. On no other occasion did she play the slow movement in such a calm and heartfelt manner so expressively, as on that evening. In the slow movement, above which hung a frisson of eternal beauty, the artist managed to excel herself.

In cooperation with the label belvedere edition, the Mozarteum Foundation is publishing highlights of the Mozart Week from its beginnings until today. Contemporary history and the history of interpretation become audible on carefully restored sound documents in excellent sound quality. Moreover, the edition will also comprise current recordings from the Mozart Week and concerts throughout the season, using the most up-to-date recording and production techniques.

The Mozart Week has taken place annually in Salzburg since 1956. Renowned artists have made their mark on this festival since its beginnings and created a distinct impact as regards interpretation, artistic analysis and musical performance.

Concerts from the Mozart Week have been recorded on radio and television since the inauguration of the festival. The treasures in the archives of these concert recordings are now being issued on CD and DVD.

Recorded: 1956
