David Mellor - Sunday 6 December 2015, 7pm

David showcases music from the late, great American opera star, Anna Moffo.

Anna Moffo

On this week's show David features a selection of his personal favourites from the classical world, including tracks from the American opera singer, actress and TV personality Anna Moffo.

One of the leading lyric-coloratura sopranos of her generation, Moffo possessed a warm and radiant voice of considerable range and agility. Because of her physical appearance she was nicknamed La Bellissima .

David will tell stories from her varied career and play some of her greatest recordings.

She will be remembered as a singer who made it a mission to reach new classical music audiences. "You may not like what I do," she said in a 1972 interview, "but you can't say I'm dull".
