The Salzburg Festival is celebrating its centenary this year, but inevitably celebrations are somewhat curtailed and muted. There is a scaled-down, socially-distant version of the festival in Salzburg, but for those unable or unwilling to travel, ARTE Concert is bringing the festival to us with daily live streams of performances.

Things kicked off on Saturday 1 August 2020, with a live-stream of Richard Strauss' Elektra (in Krzysztof Warlikowski's production, conducted by Franz Welser-Möst) followed by Mozart's Cosi fan tutte (in Christoph Loy's staging, conducted by Joana Mallwitz) on 2 August 2020.

For the next three nights (3-5 August 2020) sees pianist Igor Levitt giving the first part of his Beethoven piano sonata cycle, which continues next week. Also to come are performances from Ivor Bolton and the Mozarteum Orchestra in Mozart, the Belcea Quartet in Beethoven, Andris Nelsons and the Vienna Philharmonic in Mahler, Daniel Barenboim and the East-Western Divan Orchestra, Riccardo Muti and the Vienna Philharmonic in Beethoven's Symphony No. 9, recitals from soprano Sonya Yoncheva, violinist Renaud Capucon, pianist Marta Argerich, and much more.
