Everything began with a Mozart Society, at least for us as the Ludwigsburg Festival. The music historian and lover Wilhelm Krämer founded the »Mozartgemeinde« in 1932 and masterfully opened the Ludwigsburg Palace to a broad audience. He made Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s works the core of his 38-year tenure. The concert series that would turn into a comprehensive festival almost 90 years later began with a chamber music concert. At the time, the Wendling Quartet performed Mozart’s String Quartet
in G-major, the Divertimento for String Trio in E-flat-major and the Clarinet Quintet in A-major. The latter is now revived at the same performance venue by a quintet of members of the Mahler Chamber Orchestra. Nine decades later, the Ordenssaal can no longer be accused of being »chilly as a grotto«; especially not when the programme with which the excellent chamber musicians conclude their concert weekend is as vivid and entertaining as this one.
This concert will also be broadcast acoustically in the courtyard of the Ludwigsburg Palace.
