The first hour will be devoted to music of Irish composer John Field, in celebration of his 231st birthday.
During the second hour, we'll feature music by the Mozart family: Mozart himself, including his first-ever composition written at the age of 6, maybe Mozart and Mozart Junior: Franz Xaver Wolfgang, in celebration of his 222nd birthday.
And at around 8:15 am: Russian pianist and conductor Mikhail Pletnev has written a really superb transcription of Beethoven's Violin Concerto with a difference: it's for clarinet, and it is a work you've probably never heard before. We'll have this astonishing recording for you.
As ever, I look forward to the pleasure of your company. Vivace! Friday from 6 to 9 am.
