The German master-pianist Christian Zacharias has devoted a lifetime to the music of Mozart, and today he directs the ECO in both the majestic Prague Symphony and some of Mozart's brilliant concert arias - music that Mozart said should fit a singer's voice "like a well-tailored suit". First, however, he stars as both soloist and director in Mozart's 25th Piano Concerto exactly as the composer himself would have done, back in 1786.
