David Mellor's Albums of the Year

The annual review of the year's best classical releases from the man who knows best.

David Mellor presents two programmes in which he selects the cream of the crop from 2013 releases and re-releases. 

Verdi and Wagner are more than likely to appear, considering the amount of new releases marking the two great composers' bicentenaries.

Settle back for three hours in total packed full of music of the very highest quality. The first programme is broadcast on Saturday 28 December at 9pm, the second on Sunday 29 December from 7pm-9pm.
