Roger Wright, controller of Radio 3, December 2010: "we're thrilled to announce our all-encompassing Mozart season, building on Radio 3's unchallenged track record in using its whole schedule to celebrate the music of a composer. Mozart was a prolific genius, so we hope that new audiences will join Radio 3 and BBC Four on air and online for what promises to be a really entertaining and informative 12 days."
