Mostly Mozart

The week's news at a glance.

Salzburg, Austria

Austria has declared 2006 to be a year dedicated to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Salzburg, the town where the composer was born 250 years ago, will hold at least five major Mozart concerts every week, all year long. This summer’s Salzburg Festival will, for the first time, stage all 22 of Mozart’s operas during its six-week season. And a different Mozart Mass will be performed every Sunday. “Mozart’s music will be as good this year as it was last year,” musicologist James Kennaway told the London Independent. “But by the end of 2006, we can safely say that most people are going to be a little sick of him.”
