In this very special performance, a venerated octagenarian conductor celebrates the exuberant musical mastery of youth, with a programme of music written entirely by teenagers. Alongside Mendelssohn’s famous overture, we mark Clara Schumann’s anniversary, discover gems by Strauss and Schubert, and marvel at the amazing accomplishment of the 18-year-old Mozart.
