Smooth Classics with Margherita Taylor 10pm - 1am
Alex James looks at the major classical music anniversaries and events of the coming week - and marks St. Valentine's Day, of course.
We'll also be hearing from a composer who made his public debut on this day in history at the age of just nine, and there’ll be music by the American composer John Adams, who’s celebrating his birthday tomorrow.
Looking ahead over the rest of the week, we’ll find out why, in February 1764, a sore throat nearly finished off a young Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and Alex and explains just why George Gershwin became a radio presenter on 19th February 1934.
