Good things come in small packages. Musicians make bad jokes about viola players, but they’re just jealous – because, as this delightful concert proves, when you add a viola to the mix, you unlock a little universe of musical potential. The young Mozart works miracles in 18th century Salzburg, Haydn charms the wig off his aristocratic boss and Martinu reinvents Tudor England in jazz-age Prague. Pocket-sized pleasures from the RSNO’s finest.
