David Mellor: Sunday 24 February 2013

This week, David explores the history of the symphony, from Mozart to Mahler, inspired by a 55-CD boxed set called The Vienna Philharmonic Symphony Edition.

The musical journey begins with Mozart’s very first symphony, composed before he turned 10, and ends with Mahler’s Symphony No.4, taking in works by Haydn, Beethoven, Schubert, Mendelssohn, Schumann and more.
