The New Releases Show with David Mellor - Saturday 7 February 2015, 9pm
David Mellor casts his eye – and ears – over the best of the new classical albums.
Tonight, David Mellor champions the young American violinist Rachel Barton Pine who has teamed up with Sir Neville Marriner and the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields to perform Mozart's complete violin concertos. Pine has been performing each of the five concertos in a single evening's concert and feels that playing them as a cycle has deepened her relationship with them.
David will also dip into this week’s Album of the Week from the young Polish tenor Piotr Beczala, as well as championing the pianist Maurizio Pollini and his remarkable Beethoven project.
