The year of 1781 marked the height of the mania for all things Turkish for the Viennese public – hence Mozart's Die entführung heard yesterday and parts of Haydn's closing movement this morning. Mozart's Oboe Quartet, inspired by the remarkable virtuoso Friedrich Ramm, also comes from this fecund year. Our WW1 theme continues with delightful English and Dutch miniatures; and to close, Mendelssohn's miracle of cyclic form, stemming from a three-note motto from a song about a romantic assignation, 'Is it true that you are waiting for me?'.
