Katie Derham presents the Skampa Quartet in a recital given at LSO St Luke's in London. Mozart: String Quartet in B flat, K458 (Hunt); String Quartet in D (Prussian).

The Czech Skampa Quartet in an all-Mozart programme from LSO St Luke's in London. Today's programme features two of the composer's best-loved works, the Quartet in B flat major nicknamed "The Hunt" and one of the quartets Mozart wrote for the King of Prussia, who was a keen amateur cellist. Not surprisingly the cello has a suitably interesting and prominent part to play!

Presented by Katie Derham.
