The MozartFest is Bath's annual celebration of the the music of W. A. Mozart, those who influenced him, and those who were inspired by his work.
In this live broadcast from this year's 25th anniversary season, we hear one of Mozart's last completed works, his heavenly Clarinet Concerto, alongside the spirited symphony he composed, aged just 15, between tours of Italy. The programme is rounded off by Tchaikovsky's ever-popular tribute to Mozart's musical world, a work he composed purely for his own pleasure.
