The New Releases Show with David Mellor: 11 May

David features more from Classic FM’s Album of the Weekend – the Orchestra of the Suisse Romande’s new Chabrier recording.

He’ll also be playing more from John Suchet’s Album of the Week, which sees Rachel Podger performing violin concertos by Bach.  And for his Best Bargain, David’s chosen a new album of Verdi’s ballet music from the operas, performed by the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra.
