No. 1: Mozart on the road

RCO Editions No. 1

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791) spent a third of his short life on the road. Travelling was expensive and dangerous, but it gave Mozart ample time to compose new work, trying to cater to the tastes of different audiences in different cities. This Edition features two great symphonies, written ‘on the road’, for premieres in Paris and Prague.
