The New Releases Show with David Mellor - Saturday 24 January 2015, 9pm

David Mellor looks at the latest new recordings including offerings from two superb pianists.

This week, David Mellor features more from Classic FM’s Album of the Week – Ji Liu’s Piano Encores – and also shines the spotlight on another pianist, Jean-Efflam Bavouzet and his brilliant recording of Russian favourites.  

There's also Baroque music aplenty, including a fantastic new release of Handel’s rarely-heard Music for Queen Caroline.
