As part of the “Genius of Mozart” season on BBC Radio 3 from 1-12 January 2011, Stephen Johnson visits Clandon Park House in Surrey to explore Mozart’s most famous serenade – “Eine Kleine Nachtmusik”.

He’s joined by the architect Jonathan Foyle to discuss the links between Mozart’s musical structures and the Palladian-style architecture of the period, and by the historian Steven Parissien who’ll be giving his insight into the social history of the time and into the European-wide concept of 18th century sensibility.

Musical extracts are played by The Doric Quartet and double-bass player Tim Gibbs.
