Notes & Reviews:

Britten's empathy with Mozart is already legendary, as pianist and accompanist he has been praised for many decades, and as composer there is little more to be said. These live recordings are revelatory and deeply satisfying - and we are grateful to the Earl of Harewood for making them available.
