Presented by Lionel Salter
18th-century Melodrama '... a staged piece with no singing, only recitation ... now and then the words are spoken whilst the music goes on, and this produces the finest effect.' (MOZART, 1778) Richard LUCKETT sketches the origins of this short-lived genre as a prelude to a performance of the work Mozart was describing, Medea by Jlri Benda.
