Recently I encountered Mozart Symphonies 29/35/38. The music-making is superlative. It's the best Prague Symphony known to me. In his pre-concert address, Sir Thomas haughtily states that Mozart never underwent an apprenticeship; he merely grew in maturity. Now far be it from me to dissent with someone who looks alarmingly like Colonel Harland Sanders but I do wonder if Beecham was conversant with the likes of K 6 - K 12 when he made this statement.

This is wallpaper music from the chateau. While it's highly accomplished to the ear, in essence Wolferl is learning his craft. If you want to gauge your response to this music, start with the Minuet I & II of K 9. It's not going to change your life or summon fire from the heavens but how endearing it is - and dare one say it: civilised. Young though he be, it's amazing how many of the fundamentals are in place: the sense of proportion, flow and songfulness. As an alternative, turn to the Andante of K 10 and its closing bars; how does a mere stripling manage to evoke such longing? Will we ever fathom the mystery? Robert Johnson is reputed to have met up with the Devil at a crossroad where he learnt various rifts in exchange for his soul. Did the Salzburg Kid have similar tutelage?

Father Melchizedek OP, the High Priest of Period Practice, would love nothing better than to consign this endeavour to the pyre: nowadays, who would pair a modern-day violin with a harpsichord at 440Hz? It's anachronistic, that much I concede. Once one has made the aural adjustment, it does not fail from want of sensitivity or acumen. Indeed, how musical this outing is. Nor are we inundated with alternatives.
