Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra - Essence of Classical Style

While Mozart is widely regarded as the lyric pinnacle of Classical style, he was strongly influenced by those who came before him. When in London on tour as a child prodigy a young Wolgang befriended J.C. Bach, youngest son of J.S. Bach. Haydn also became a paternal mentor to Mozart, and they often played chamber music and attended concerts together. From Bach, Mozart borrowed a brilliant texture and from Haydn a wide vocabulary of emotive expression.

Hear Mozart's musical evolution in this program that features two talented Philharmonia Baroque wind players - Marc Schachman and Danny Bond - as soloists for J.C. Bach's Sinfonia Concertante for Oboe and Bassoon. Bach's and Haydn's symphonies draw a direct line to Mozart's early twenty-ninth symphony, showing his music evolving from the strong influence of his mentors.
