The Early Music Show

13 March 2005

Sunday 13 March 2005 13:00-14:00 (Radio 3)

Andrew Manze presents the first of two programmes which focus on the music of The Mannheim School.

Founded in the early 18th century by Joseph Stamitz, the Mannheim orchestra quickly became one of the most successful in Europe. Music literally poured from the castle walls and made household names of Stamitz, Christian Cannabich and Franz Xaver Richter.
