Roll on Mozart - Festival in Salzburg 2006, Austria, for celebrating the music genius Wolfang Amadeus Mozart!

This year Salzburg city in Austria celebrate the 250 year`s Anniversity of its big son Mozart. The Mozart Year has already been started with festivities to honour the world famous composer and musican. You can almost feel Mozart's melodies in the narrow streets of the city. As the Tourismus Salzburg says: You won't need to look for Mozart in Salzburg this year - Mozart will find you! The special "Viva! Mozart" exhibition will give visitors an opportunity to glance behind the scenes of the legendary Mozart. The Whitsun Baroque Festival in June 2 - 5 this year - 2006. The Salzburg composer's birthday is moving the music-historical aspect: into the center of ancient Europe, into the middle of the 18th century. It started 250 years ago when Mozart was born in Salzburg. Today many big rock groups as the Radiohead, Waterboys, Roxy Music, Libertines, A-ha, U2, REM, Kent and Madrugada continue to develop the music, but for many people Mozart is still rock`n roll, and he will never be forgotten!
