Our dinner concerts transport you back to Mozart's time. Enjoy an evening's entertainment in the style of 1790 with candlelight, a menu based on historical recipes, period costume and instruments, and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's exquisite music.
The Amadeus Consort Salzburg was founded in 1996. The ensemble performs in period costume and usually consists of six musicians and two singers. However, the group has been known to draw on a full orchestra and opera cast when required. All the members of the ensemble are graduates of the Mozarteum University Salzburg and work with renowned orchestras and international opera houses. Some of the singers, Aleksandra Zamojska among them, can also be heard at the Salzburg Festival. Virtuosity and an infectious joy in music-making distinguish the musicians of the Amadeus Consort. In addition to Mozart's divertimenti, serenades and quartets, all the great Mozart operas have been reorchestrated for the Amadeus Consort's chamber orchestra: the The Magic Flute and Don Giovanni are always popular and are sometimes performed with period instruments. More than 40,000 copies of the ensemble’s CD, Zu Gast bei Mozart have been issued. The musicians have appeared on TV all over the world (including the BBC, ORF and ZDF) and have become known to a huge audience.
Eschewing modern forms of transport, the Amadeus Consort went on a week-long carriage ride from Salzburg to Munich on the occasion of Mozart's 250th birthday in 2006. They broke their journey at various points, including Laufen, Seeon Abbey, Wasserburg and Munich – all places that Mozart had visited on his travels. Emulating Mozart, they gave a concert, dined and spent the night in each of these places. The concert at Seeon Abbey was recorded and broadcast by Radio Bayern Klassik (Bayern 4).
