The combination of clarinet, viola and piano, invented by Mozart, inspired him to write one of his most original and mellifluous chamber works, and threw down the gauntlet to composers ever since.

Ian Wilson is the most recent to take up the challenge in a work commissioned jointly by the Royal Philharmonic Society and BBC Radio 3 for its New Generation Artists.

Anniversary composer Kurtág's tribute to another anniversary composer, Schumann, is characteristically elusive: the distillation of dreams.

Presented by Stephanie Hughes live from Cadogan Hall, London.
