About Camerata Salzburg
Since its formation, the CAMERATA has been a regular ensemble in its home city of Salzburg as a concert and opera orchestra at the Salzburg Festival as well as the Mozart Week, and has its own subscription series at the Great Hall of the Mozarteum Foundation.
The CAMERATA regularly performs in Europe's centres of music from the Vienna, Zurich, Frankfurt, Ferrara, Luzern and Munich to Cologne Philharmonic and Paris; it is invited to various international festivals, as a representative of Salzburg's Mozart style, and goes on at least one major overseas tour every year.
More than 60 recordings on vinyl and CD, many of which were awarded major prizes, document the musical culture of the Camerata Salzburg spanning six decades.
Musical personalities such as Géza Anda, Sándor Végh, Sir Roger Norrington and András Schiff have influenced the CAMERATA. Famous musicians such as Clara Haskil, Alfred Brendel, Philippe Herreweghe, Franz Welser-Möst, Pinchas Zukerman, Anne-Sophie Mutter, Teodor Currentzis, Hilary Hahn and Fazil Say have performed with the CAMERATA through the decades, whose classical core repertoire with Salzburg's "genius loci", Mozart, and Viennese Classical music at the centre, extends to the Romantic and Modern periods.
