'New Mozart work' gets premiere (BBC)
A recently discovered 18th-Century keyboard work believed to be one of the earliest by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart has been performed in Austria.

The piece - about two minutes long - was played by Florian Birsak on a harpsichord in the Salzburg Residenz.

The discovery came in the 250th anniversary year of Mozart's birth, which was marked by festivities in his homeland and Mozart concerts worldwide.

Experts think Mozart wrote the piece when he was aged between six and 10.

It bears the title Allegro di Wolfgango Mozart and was contained in a volume of anonymous manuscripts given to Salzburg Archdiocese archivist Ernst Hintermaier, Austrian media report.
