Second in a six-part sub-series. This programme concerns Mozart, one of the first composers to try and earn a living as a freelance. For the first five years of his life in Vienna, he met with considerable success, thanks mainly to his prowess at the keyboard and the acclaim he received for his opera's "The abduction from the seraglio" and "The marriage of Figaro".
