Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart spent ten years, two months and eight days – all in all nearly a third of his lifetime – travelling. During these sojourns he met with countless, mainly older, colleagues. These encounters turned out to be never ending sources of inspiration for the rest of his life. The “musical souvenirs” which Mozart collected are included on our Grand Tour of pre-Classical Europe during the 1770s: from Milano to London, from Paris to Berlin. Other leading contributors include a Bohemian in Italy, two much-travelled composers from Mannheim and the Bach of the (late) 18th century.
