Good episode? Give it some love!
It was the night before Brexit, and the MCO was in the heart of London performing Mozart with Mitsuko Uchida to a sold-out Royal Festival Hall.

Join us as we revisit his travels as a young artist, talk British life in Europe with trumpeter Christopher Dicken and MCO staff member Mark Parker, and venture out into the city streets to take in the historic final moments on the very edge of Brexit.
