Jay Nordlinger, music critic of The New Criterion, talks music—but, more important, plays music.

As Jay tells us at the beginning, he has been reviewing from two summer festivals: the Mostly Mozart Festival (New York) and the Salzburg Festival, in Mozart’s hometown. He discusses and plays a variety of music performed at these festivals: Haydn, Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Enescu—and Mozart, for sure.

Mendelssohn, Variations sérieuses
Beethoven, Violin Concerto
Mozart, Piano Concerto No. 27 in B flat, K. 595
Handel, “Tornami a vagheggiar,” from Alcina
Handel, “Verdi prati,” from Alcina
Haydn, Symphony No. 88
