Andras Schiff (piano & conductor)
Hungarian-born pianist Andras Schiff pairs arguably Mozart's first great concerto with one of the composer's late sequence of masterpieces. Mozart's friend and mentor Haydn's relationship with London was cemented with a series of twelve so-called 'London' symphonies, written on a grand scale and overflowing with Haydn's trademark invention and wit.
