In later life, Mozart and family travelled to the Czech Republic where Prague became the catalyst for his bright, boisterous Prague Symphony with its beautiful Andante. It was there that he befriended the brilliant cellist and composer, Anton Kraft. Their celebrated Dresden performance of Kraft’s concerto was lauded by critics, including Beethoven. Istvan Vardai and ICO ignite the Kraft concerto in this wonderful pot-pourri of music and words!
