Live from the National Concert Hall Paul Herriott presents Mozart’s Violin.

Mozart’s violin concertos are wonders of youthful invention with the first boasting a brilliantly witty finale, the second exuberantly extrovert and virtuosic, and the fleet-footed third (popularised in the Russell Crowe film Master and Commander) memorably borrowing a French folk tune. The athletic, adrenalin-packed Paris Symphony delivers entertainment at full throttle.
