Another chance to hear Pinchas Zukerman and colleagues from the National Arts Centre Orchestra in Toronto, where he is Music Director. They perform a chamber music miniature by the youthful Franz Schubert and Mozart's most extended, superbly eloquent quintet written in that prolific summer of 1788, just before his final three symphonies.

Presented by Stephanie Hughes.
