History

The beginning of the festival was a series of chamber music concerts in 1932 at the palace, organized by the Ludwigsburger Mozartgemeinde. Wolfgang Gönnenwein, who was the artistic director from 1972 to 2004, developed the festival to an event of three months with around 100 events. The state Baden-Württemberg made the festival a state event with a new official name from 1980. From 2005 to 2009 it was directed by Wulf Konold and the conductor Michael Hofstetter. Thomas Wördehoff has been director from 2009.
