Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is a favourite of musical connoisseurs and casual listeners alike. A musical genius, he wrote himself into history at a very early age. His versatility as a composer still astonishes us today and his oeuvre extends into every style and genre, revealing the full diversity of artistic expression of Mozart’s age. Even in his lifetime, Mozart’s music attracted attention all over Europe. Today it is popular all over the world. On hearing one of the composer’s melodies, one immediately thinks: “Hmm, I know that tune. What is it?” The dilemma is swiftly resolved by the follow-up thought: “Mmm . . . Mozart?!” The concert features Mozart’s music and reflections of Mozart by some of his contemporaries, performed by Irena Grafenauer and friends. Grafenauer, a celebrated Slovene flautist, became principal flautist with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, one of Germany’s finest orchestras, at the age of 20. After ten years in Munich she continued her artistic career as a top soloist and teacher. From 1987 to 2016 she was a full professor of flute at the Mozarteum in Salzburg. As a soloist she has performed with the most famous orchestras and the most eminent conductors. She has recorded more than 30 albums and, as a highly appreciated interpreter of Mozart’s music, participated in the recording of the Complete Mozart Edition released by Philips. She has received numerous awards for her work, including a 2005 Prešeren Prize for excellence in music over the course of her career, honorary membership of the Slovenian Philharmonic, the Golden Order of Freedom of the Republic of Slovenia and the Austrian Cross of Honour for Science and Art.
