Few composers share Mozart’s truly international outlook, which began at an early age with his European travels. It’s hardly surprising, then, that he recreates a diverse range of cultures within his music.

Following a seven-concert tour of the Far East with the AAM, South Korean soprano Sumi Jo joins us once again to perform arias brimming with atmosphere from Greek myths to Turkish palaces. But it wasn’t only with the voice that Mozart could conjure foreign flavours: the programme also features Viennese Masonic funeral music and the ‘Paris’ symphony, which bursts into life with the so-called ‘Mannheim rocket’.
