01Adam Walker and James Baillieu - Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert2017053020180508 (R3)

Adam Walker (flute) and James Baillieu (piano) perform CPE Bach, Mozart and Schubert.

Live and recorded concerts from all over the UK. Includes the Wigmore chamber music series

Clemency Burton-Hill presents Mozart Plus, with music performed by the flautist Adam Walker and pianist James Baillieu, recorded at St Mary's Church, Hay-on-Wye, during the 2017 Hay Festival. Included in the concert is one of CPE Bach's 'Hamburg' sonatas, composed late in his career, when he could write chamber music for his own pleasure and not to order for an employer. Following this, two works by Mozart both composed between 1777 and 1780. The Andante in C may have been written as a substitute slow movement for one of the flute concertos, whereas the Rondo is a reworking of a work for violin and orchestra. The concert ends with Schubert's Introduction and Variations on one of his own songs, Trockne Blumen or Dry Flowers, and given a rich and virtuosic reworking intended for the flautist Ferdinand Bogner.

02Federico Colli - Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert2017053120180509 (R3)

Pianist Federico Colli performs music by Mozart and Beethoven.

Live and recorded concerts from all over the UK. Includes the Wigmore chamber music series

Clemency Burton-Hill presents Mozart Plus, with music performed by the pianist Federico Colli, recorded at St Mary's Church, Hay-on-Wye, during the 2017 Hay Festival. Included in the concert is Mozart's ten variations on Gluck's popular aria 'Unser dummer Pöbel meint', from the opera 'La rencontre imprévue'. This is followed by an early piano sonata by Beethoven, dedicated to Haydn and called by some his 'little Appassionata'. The concert finishes with a return to Mozart and an early sonata from 1775. Some of his early sonatas demonstrate the influence of Haydn, and yet this work reveals a kinship to Johann Christian Bach.
