As part of our run-up to Mozart's 250th birthday in January, we're introducing a new series. "Must-Have Mozart" is a series of intimate reflections on particular recordings of Mozart's music. Our guide in the series is Nicholas Kenyon, who is responsible for broadcasts of the Proms concerts at the BBC. Kenyon has also written a book, The Faber Pocket Guide to Mozart. He will join Fred Child on Tuesdays to talk about a favorite Mozart recording.
