Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart spent ten years, two months and eight days – nearly a third of his life – travelling. As he grew into mastery, the young composer from Salzburg cultivated the many contacts, recommendations and encounters he made on his journeys, and these became a wellspring of artistic inspiration that poured forth for the rest of his life.

The acoustic impressions – or “musical souvenirs” – that Mozart gathered take us on a Grand Tour of the pre-classical Europe of the 1770s: from Milan to London, from Paris to Berlin. Other leading contributors include: a Bohemian in Italy, two well-travelled composers from Mannheim and the Bach of the (late) 18th century.
