The maestro also visited the paediatric ward, playing pieces from Schuman’s Scenes from Childhood, and Beethoven's Fur Elise, then switching sides, listening intently as part of the audience, and taking the lead in applauding a young patient’s performance of Mozart’s piano sonata No16 in c major K545 with a raucous ‘Bravo!’
