Classical Prodigies
Elizabeth Weichsell Billington & Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Barbara Harbach, harpsichord

A striking comparison of two of the world’s most gifted child prodigies -- Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, who needs no other accolades, and Elizabeth Weichsell, who went on to become one of the greatest singers England ever produced. This disc juxtaposes the keyboard works of each composer at age eight, and again at age eleven. This pure-digital recording is sure to make you hear the harpsichord with a brilliance that you’ve never heard before.
