The New Releases Show with David Mellor - Saturday 6 December 2014, 9pm

This week David Mellor features new releases from some of classical music’s biggest stars.

Among the tantalising new releases on offer tonight, there's Jonas Kaufmann ’s latest album, 50 Great Arias . The tenor signed to Decca in 2007, and these four outstanding CDs were recorded between then and 2013. During those six years, there has been nothing but superlatives for Kaufmann, from critics and public alike. This varied selection showcases his vocal flexibility in style, genres and languages.

Also tonight, Maurizio Pollini performs Beethoven, and there's some spicy Brazilian guitar music to remind us of warmer climes.
