The scholarly Mozart community – still working its way through the books and articles piled up from the
extravagant celebrations of the composer in 1991 – can hardly be blamed for viewing this year’s memorial
mayhem with a certain degree of weariness in advance. Maybe that’s why the Internationale Stiftung
Mozarteum in Salzburg, arguably the world’s most prominent institution devoted solely to Mozart, decided
to get their 2006 conference on the books in December 2005. Their rather neutral concept (‘The Young
Mozart 1756–1780: Philology – Analysis – Reception’) promised a sober, scholarly, informative international
round of papers on a comfortably broad topic. This promise was met.
