During the course of his remarkable career, Mozart never failed to come back to the place where it had all started: Schoenbrunn. At the early age of six, he took his first steps towards an international career by performing for Empress Maria Theresia in Schoenbrunn. Years later, he had his musical duel with his eternal rival Salieri at Schoenbrunn Palace Orangery. Some of his works had their world premiere here at the Orangery.
