Classic FM Presenters

2014 has been a great year for classical music and in these two special programmes, David Mellor makes his own personal pick of the best of the new albums that were released during the year.

It was the year that Julian Lloyd Webber announced his retirement from live performing because of a neck injury. Will his final album of double cello concertos with his wife Jiaxin make it into David's choices?

John Eliot Gardiner released spirited versions of Beethoven's Symphonies No. 2 and 8. How will they fare in David's list?

And of the bright young musicians who have brought out new albums in 2014, will David follow other critics in praising Daniel Hope's Escape To Paradise or Benjamin Grosvenor's Dances?
