The Mozart Festival Broadcasts - Part 4 of 4

August 17, 2012

St. Paul, Minn. — The Mozart Festival series of radio programs is comprehensive coverage of one of the world's most spectacular music events. Location-recorded in Mozart's hometown of Salzburg, Austria, The Mozart Festival includes performances by some of the world's leading soloists and orchestras, backstage clips with performers, and location-recorded features touring the Mozarteum Foundation's priceless collections, including Mozart's original manuscripts and personal possessions.

Behind-the-scenes features take listeners to Mozart's birthplace to examine an original edition of his father's legendary textbook on violin playing; to the Mozart family's residence to hear Mozart's own piano; and to the Mozarteum Foundation's underground vaults for a first-hand look at some of Mozart's earliest original manuscripts.
