David Walliams' Marvellous Musical Podcast

Episode 1: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart


Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: You might well have heard of Mozart – but did you know he had a really rude sense of humour? Or that he owned a pet starling? In the first episode, David meets one of the most famous composers of all time… and has a bit of a run in with a music professor.
