Early Breakfast with Lucy Coward 4am - 6am
Mozart's 'Jupiter' Symphony is a highlight of tonight's Concert, which also features music by Bach, Chopin and Locatelli.
Catherine Bott also features Chopin’s well-loved Piano Concerto No.1, and Mozart’s crowd-pleasing 'Jupiter' Symphony. The symphony was written by Mozart during a prolific seven-week spell in the summer of 1788 when he produced three fully formed symphonies. But its planetary name was probably coined by the impresario Johann Peter Salomon and first used in a concert programme for the Philharmonic Society of London 26 years after Mozart died.
