The Mozarteum Salzburg has begin work on a two-year redesign of its Schwarzstrasse centre, which was built between 1912 and 1914.

Changes over the next two years will see ‘the bastion garden will be integrated into the concert operations’, in other words covered with concrete. Nobody seems to be protesting.

    Amazing to have such a memoriam of such a genius. A bit ironic that I just watched Amadeus the other day.
