Every Saturday night at 9pm-10pm, David Mellor reviews all the latest classical music releases.
This week David selects his favourite releases and re-releases including recordings of Holst's Cotswold Symphony and Tchaikovsky's violin concertos. His Choice for the Very Curious is from a composer called Robert Fuchs, and his Best Bargain is from the Sao Paolo Symphony Orchestra, under the baton of Marin Alsop, performing music by Prokofiev.
