Clemency Burton-Hill presents Mozart Plus, with music performed by the Amatis Trio, recorded at St Mary's Church, Hay-on-Wye, during the 2017 Hay Festival. Included in the concert is Mozart's late Piano Trio in B flat major, considered one of his two masterworks in the art form. This is followed by Mendelssohn's Piano Trio No 2 in C minor, which was his last chamber work he saw published during in his own lifetime, and has remained popular with artists and listeners ever since its premiere.
