Mendelssohn himself banned his Fifth Symphony from being performed and wanted it destroyed. Which would be a terrible advert for it if he hadn’t been so completely, utterly, wrong. It’s a superbly crafted piece of music: grand, intellectual and remarkably human.

Of Mozart’s 27 piano concertos, number 21 is probably both the most well-known and the most technically challenging. And with good reason – written on a symphonic scale, it’s bursting with tunes and opera-like wit.
