When the Eastern music joined the most beautiful topics of Mozart... Taking again the same principle that Vol.1, one finds the tubes of Mozart interpreted by more than 200 musicians mixing symphony orchestra and traditional instruments. This album was released in August 2005, in Europe only.

"Hughes' albums are all large-scale works. He is an arranger rather than a soloist. On many he combines electronic effects with medieval or baroque instruments. Mozart in Egypt takes works by Mozart and emphasises the oriental elements in them. The 25th symphony is played with a much-enlarged orchestra. Unfortunately his recordings are rarely available in the English-speaking world......
