The Classic FM Podcast - 13 July 2012

On the podcast this week Anne-Marie Minhall brings you interviews with two pianists who have taken rather unconventional routes to international acclaim.

We hear from Valentina Lisitsa who went from YouTube star to headlining the Royal Albert Hall, and Simone Dinnerstein, who's self-financed recordings of Bach's Goldberg Variations have taken the classical world by storm.

Also, the Aurora Orchestra's Nicholas Collon tells us about mixing classical music...with breakdancing.
