Audio will be available later today.

PT commentator Rob Kapilow gives us some suggestions on how to tell the music of Mozart and Haydn apart. He says Haydn revels in the building of a piece, and Mozart takes great care to make his surfaces shine. Kapilow focuses on the opening movement of Haydn's Symphony No. 100, and we'll hear a performance of it by the Austro-Hungarian Haydn Orchestra, conducted by Adam Fischer. (Nimbus 5200/4)
