Mozart & St. Peter

 

It was first mentioned in 803 on occasion of Charlemagne's visit.
Even the Mozart family had dinner there."Nannerl", Mozarts wife, wrote in her diary in october 1783: “papa and henry had lunch at st peter... made music ... rained heavily“.
In 1789 for the first time Mozart's c-minor-mass (KV 427) was performed in the church of St. Peter monastery. Constanze Mozart sang one of the soprano solo parts.

The composer Michael Haydn, a good friend of Mozart, lived and performed music in the "Haydn Room". Our musicians like to spend their breaks there when dinner is served in the Baroquehall.
