22 Operas, 41 Symphonies, 27 Piano Concerti, 18 Piano Sonatas, 23 String Quartets, 36 Sonatas for piano and violin - all this and more created in just a short span of 35 years of life, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, born in Salzburg, continued to be prolific until the last year of his life in Vienna, when he produced some of his greatest works 'The Magic Flute', his Clarinet Concerto and the unfinished 'Requiem'.
Mozart 36 follows his journey as a young composer from age 8 with the first of his Sonatas for piano and violin to the last in 1788, when he was living at the centre of the Viennese musical world as the city's finest keyboard player and a hugely successful composer.

‘With a lyrical sensitivity honed by his chamber-music performances, pianist Sam Haywood creates melodies scaled to perfection against a patina of swirling accompaniment…’
The Washington Post
‘Haywood does this repertoire (Stanford Preludes) absolutely proud; possessing a pleasingly rounded tone, sensitivity to dynamic nuance and flawless technical address, his is a decidedly superior brand of pianism.’
‘Dazzling and evocative playing’
The Washington Post
‘Passionate flair, a warm touch and sparkling clarity’
The New York Times
‘Just the right amount of swagger and flair’
The Guardian, U.K.
Tang Tee Khoon, violin
‘Having won the grand prize for all-round best musician at the 1993 National Music Competition at age nine, Tang has gone on to become a chamber musician of the highest order. Her latest concert … also showed she has matured beyond raw prodigious talent to something truly transcendent.
Despite her petite built, she exuded a big and brawny tone on the violin, one capable of cutting through plangent piano textures and capaciously filling the hall. In Prokofiev's Second Violin Sonata, she alternated between its bittersweet reminiscences and mercurial dervishes so expertly and confidently without as much as breaking into a sweat.
She brought out the requisite shades and nuances of Tchaikovsky's Souvenir D'un Lieu Cher … Through these, an unfailingly singing tone happily co-existed with an iron-clad technique and razor-keen responses.’
