Ian Page conducts his award-winning period instrument ensemble, The Mozartists, in the third volume of their Sturm und Drang series. Highly dramatic and turbulent orchestral works characterise these albums, with repertoire on this instalment from Mozart, Schweitzer, Kozeluch, Paisiello and Haydn dating between 1771 and 1788. The Mozartists are one of the leading ensembles performing the music of their namesake and his contemporaries. They have drawn widespread acclaim for their engaging performances and dynamic recordings.

Recorded 3-5 January 2023 in St John's Smith Square, London, UK.
