Watch an analysis of Mozart's Eine Kleine Nachtmusik

As part of the Genius of Mozart season, Stephen Johnson visits Clandon Park House in Surrey to explore Mozart's most famous serenade - Eine Kleine Nachtmusik.

He's joined by the architect Jonathan Foyle to discuss the links between Mozart's musical structures and the Palladian-style architecture of the period, and by the historian Steven Parissien who'll be giving his insight into the social history of the time and into the European-wide concept of 18th century sensibility.

Musical extracts are played by The Doric Quartet and double-bass player Tim Gibbs.
