This Art Nouveau building was constructed in the beginning of the 20th century for the International Mozart Foundation. The figures depict worldly and religious music as well as the four basic music tempi.
The Mozarteum is housing the headquarters of the Mozart Foundation and several music halls that are for example used for the Mozart Festival. It is an impressive and worthy building!
At the backside of the Mozarteum, you can see the little garden house where - as legend has it - Mozart wrote The Magic Flute. It is called "Zauberflötenhäuschen" and was owned by Emanuel Schikaneder who wrote the libretto of the opera. It was later brought from Vienna to Salzburg and given to the foundation as a gift. Unfortunately, I only read about that when I was back in Germany, so I did not have a look!
The Mozarteum is where you receive musical education. It includes a Concert Hall, and there is a Foundation that keeps memorabilia of Mozart, and promotes the Mozart Week Festival, which coincides with Mozart's Birthday on January 27th.
Outside the building are a few statues and art nouveau decoration making it quite an appealing building.
This is an auditorium where you can watch chamber music. The cool interior has some excellent mouldings and is an initmate place for watching concerts and recitals.
I saw Quartet Music of music written by Mahler (when he was 16).
