The New Releases Show with David Mellor - Saturday 20 September 2014, 9pm

David Mellor's pick of the week includes Julian Lloyd Webber's farewell album.

This week, David Mellor features the cellist Julian Lloyd Webber’s final album. It follows Julian and his wife Jiaxin's highly successful album A Tale of Two Cellos. This recording of Vivaldi concertos will have poignant associations and special value for their many fans, as Julian has since been forced to withdraw from performing because of injury. 

There's also a rare musical surprise from Poulenc, and a stunning recording of Beethoven’s Emperor Piano Concerto. The Scottish Chamber Orchestra plays Schumann, and we’ll be hearing from the man described as 'the hottest young conductor around'.
