The New Releases Show: 19 January 2013

This week, David’s features an outstanding pianist who’s just 15 years old. We’ll also enjoy the new recording of Beethoven’s Symphony No.7 that John Brunning championed on Classic FM Drive last week. David’s Album of the Week, meanwhile, is by the outstanding cellist Alisa Weilerstein, who’s collaborated with Daniel Barenboim to record the famous Elgar Cello Concerto.
