This program, awarded for its uniqueness by the French government agency, Culturfrance , confronts Mozart with representatives of French classicism, some never before played. These composers of the second half of the 18th century Besson, Carpentier, Doisy, Porro and Pollet whose music is full of grace and esprit, draw inspiration from the smaller musical forms : romances, ballads, arias, minuets. This homage to Mozart is crowned in its world première with pieces by C.P.E. Bach and Domenico Cimarosa.

Thanks to the ten-string guitar that plays these piano pieces without transcription , we can hear this music today as it sounded on the first pianos that little by little replaced the older harpsichord in the second half of the 18th century, during Mozart's lifetime.
