Friday - James Jolly

James Jolly presents classic recordings and works influenced by Mozart including today Beethoven's variations on a passage from Mozart's opera The Marriage of Figaro.

Our highlights today include 12 Variations by Beethoven on Se vuol ballare from Mozart's opera The Marriage of Figaro, Ravel's Piano Concerto in G featuring the soloist Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli. And we finish with two highly contrasting takes on the same theme by Mozart (from the first movement of his Piano Sonata in A, K331) - the composers are Max Reger and Leonid Chizhik.
