Dr. Matthias Rößler, president of the Landtag of the Free State of Saxony

Mozart was a genius, no one can doubt that. And yet, this statement could be misleading. Nor Mozart nor his thoughts “fell from the sky”, they are the result of countless influences and trends. And after his death? He keeps leading new generations towards new interpretations, new variations and rebellious innovations through his pieces.
VARIATIONS — with this topic, the Saxon Mozart Festival is trying to have a new look at old pieces, it is looking into the context, posts numerous discoveries and shows the known in a brand new light.
May it be operas, “vest pocket format” symphonies, the famous wordless Requiem, jazz or modern Mozart: the Saxon Mozart Festival 2018 VARIATIONS will surprise and excite you and will make you move in the spirit of Mozart’s genius and music.
