Presented by Petroc Trelawny

Live from the Anvil, Basingstoke

Gérard Korsten conducts the London Mozart players in Mozart, Strauss and a new violin concerto, "world Four Seasons" by Roxanna Panufnik, with Tasmin Little as soloist.

Mozart's prodigious talent is evident in the sparkling Symphony no 17, written when he was sixteen. A World Four Seasons is a set of four short violin concertos by Roxanna Panufnik, written specially for Tasmin Little. Depicting the the characters of the seasons like Vivaldi's famous set, they also incorporate musical styles from four different countries - an appropriately international theme for the Olympic year. Strauss' delightful incidental music for Molière's famous comedy of social climbing nods to Lully's score for the original production, and includes a Dance of the Tailors and portrait of a Fencing Master, ending with a sumptuous banquet.
