Every week Classic FM brings you the best new albums, including world exclusives.
Sundays, 7-9pm. David is always delighted to receive your thoughts on the music he plays – especially if there’s a theme you think would work well on a Sunday night. Let him know your thoughts via the form below or Tweet @ClassicFM, and listen this Sunday evening for a wonderfully indulgent and enjoyable two-hour journey of discovery on Classic FM.
Sunday 11th December, 7pm
David celebrates the three giants of classical music – Bach, Mozart and Beethoven – by showcasing pieces most of us have never heard before.
Discover two Mozart arias, hardly ever performed today, each of which was dedicated to one of the composer’s sisters-in-law. Hear Bach, but most definitely not as the composer intended, as David picks out a few gems from the violinist Nemanja Radulovic’s new album. And finally, find out why a new 26-CD recording of rarely-heard Beethoven is quite possibly the best Christmas gift you could give to a classical music aficionado.
Sunday 18th December, 7pm
With just a week to go until Christmas Day, David invites you to join him for a selection of seasonal favourites and new, festive discoveries.
