ArtistsWilhelm Backhaus (paino)
The CD 'Wilhelm Backhaus plays Mozart' contains a recording of the pianistís recital from 1956, the 200th anniversary of Mozartís birth and also the year when the Mozart Week was founded, and recordings from the recital in 1967.
It offers an interesting opportunity to compare Backhausís interpretations and the implicit relationships between Mozartís compositions.
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 (K330 and K475) and 1967
