    Mozart On The Edge Of Brexit

    It was the night before Brexit, and the MCO was in the heart of London performing Mozart with Mitsuko Uchida to a sold-out Royal Festival Hall.

    What would this well-travelled and wordly composer have made of Britain's departure from the European Union?

    Join us as we revisit his travels as a young artist, talk British life in Europe with trumpeter Christopher Dicken and MCO staff member Mark Parker, and venture out into the city streets to take in the historic final moments on the very edge of Brexit.

    So with the seatbelt sign switched on and little chance of turbulence between these friends of over 20 years, join our host Yannick Dondelinger as he sits down with Daniel to talk about flying planes and conducting Mozart.

    Sunscreen in winter? Sleeping with one eye shut?

    And for our first Matti Moment, he goes hunting for tips to banish jetlag and ends up discovering that the MCO has much more in common with birds than song.
