Donald Macleod dicusses JC Bach's relationship with his famous pupil - Mozart. With Overture (Catone in Utica); Sinfonia in G minor, Op 6, No 6; Amadis des Gaules (Act 2, Sc 5).
Donald Macleod explores Johann Christian Bach's relationship with his famous pupil - the eight-year-old Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
In 1764, the Mozarts' tour of Europe took them to London, where the Royal music master, JC Bach, arranged for them to perform for the King and Queen. The relationship between Bach and the eight-year-old Mozart flourished - and as Donald Macleod discovers in today's programme, young Wolfgang's chief ambition was that "my name will be as famous as that of Christian Bach".
