Every Saturday night at 9pm-10pm, David Mellor reviews all the latest classical music releases.
David Mellor previews a quintessentially English work, played by a Swedish orchestra under a Finnish conductor.
This week David Mellor features a great recording of Elgar’s Symphony No.1, conducted by Sakari Oramo, the Finnish conductor who has been all but adopted by British music-lovers and orchestras. For ten years he was music director of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra.
David also showcases a couple of bargain-priced new releases of choral music and a very special boxed set, The Complete Maria Callas Studio Recordings not due for release until September.
