"Roger Paterson makes full play of Mozart’s joshing charm, childish innocence and insouciant genius. Their joint exchanges are easeful on the surface yet tense underneath, as they should be, and the acting skill of the players ensures that we feel for each while not at any point condoning Salieri’s actions."
