The middle years of the 1780s were the happiest and most successful of Mozart's life... He was living in Vienna with his wife,
Constanze, and was much in demand both as composer and performer. And his genius was recognised as much by his fellow composers as by the general public. Today Donald Macleod introduces some of the music Mozart wrote and played during those hectic years.

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London.

"If ever a composer showed polyphony in its greatest strength and employed the most hidden secrets of harmony with the most skilled artistry, it was certainly our late lamented Bach." The judgement of one of Bach's sons is marvellously confirmed in this most tautly dramatic and compelling of Passion settings. Rich in invention, it rushes onward to the momentous climax of the death of Christ.

Paul Agnew (tenor), Sanford Sylvan (baritone), Ruth Ziesak (soprano), Michael Chance (countertenor), Toby Spence (tenor), Gerald Finley (bass-baritone), Choir of Clare College, Cambridge, St James's Baroque Players, conductor Ivor Bolton
