The Mozart Ensemble has also appeared performing in the Sala Terrena for several documentaries about the life and works of Mozart. These include French, Luxembourgish and Dutch television productions, as well as Fuji Television of Tokyo.
With over 200 Mozart Concerts in Vienna per year, the Mozart Ensemble Vienna has become an established fixture in Vienna’s classical music scene.
