Reinhard Goebel was awarded the “Dancing Shepherd” by the city of Würzburg for his long-standing involvement at the Mozartfest Würzburg.
He is not only a professor of historically informed performances, but also implements it in an extremely lively and “often groundbreaking form”, said Lord Mayor Schuchardt in his laudatio. The Mozartfest sees Goebel as one of its “key conductor personalities”, as he has created outstanding concert events at the festival over the past three decades.
