Drama of the Week
Friday, 28 January
By Sebastian Baczkiewicz. It's 1770 and Leopold Mozart is taking his 14-year-old son on a much-anticipated trip to Italy to perform for the great and the good. They hit trouble in Rome when young Wolfgang is found to have written down the closely guarded and hitherto unpublished music for Allegri's sacred 'Miserere'. And Cardinal Ucelli sees a chance to make a name for himself.
