Mozarteum Orchestra

Audio for this story from Performance Today is not available.

Fred Child has a brief sound portrait of Salzburg, Austria, the town where Mozart was born. Our first performance is by the Mozarteum Orchestra, which was started by Mozart's widow, Constanze and their two sons in 1841, on the 50th anniversary of Mozart's death. It's still a thriving organization. We catch up with them in their home concert hall at the Mozarteum, playing Mozart's Symphony No. 30, K. 202. They're conducted by Herbert Soudant.
