Mozart and the Bach Family
John Butt directs a programme exploring the foundations of Mozart's artistry in the music of JC, CPE and JS Bach.
The Bach family and Mozart: John Butt directs a programme exploring the foundations of Mozart's artistry in the music of the Bach family. In this first concert of the Aurora orchestra's five year project to stage the complete Mozart keyboard concertos we hear tonight from CPE Bach, who Mozart referred to as his 'musical father.' There's also music by Johann Christian 'the London' Bach who awakened the boy Mozart's interest in the keyboard concerto and from 'Old Sebastian' whose music left the mature Mozart awe-struck.
Presented by Sara Mohr-Pietsch and recorded at King's Place, London
