American keyboard player and musicologist Robert Levin has devised this programme which focuses on some of Mozart's early works, starting with the 16-year-old Mozart in the Lucio Silla overture of 1772. The following year he composed a concerto that became known as his Fifth Piano Concerto - heard here played on the harpsichord, as Mozart himself would sometimes have done. This is preceded by Robert Levin's completion of an early Mozart concerto. Mozart's debt to his friend and mentor Johann Christian Bach is reflected in a Mozart arrangement of one of his keyboard works, and the concert ends with Mozart as an 18-year-old in his landmark Symphony No.29.
