Sebastian Baczkiewicz's Wunderkind airs on BBC Radio 3

Wunderkind, a new drama written by Sebastian Baczkiewicz, will premiere on BBC Radio 3 on Sunday 23rd January at 7:30pm

The radio play is inspired by 14-year-old wunderkind Mozart's visit to Rome in 1770. The title character is unseen but the play features Mozart's father Leopold, who tries to resolve the problems that arise when  when young Wolfgang is found to have written down the closely guarded and hitherto unpublished music for Allegri's sacred 'Miserere'. And Cardinal Ucelli sees a chance to make a name for himself.

The play will be available to listen to after live broadcast on iPlayer.
