The New Releases Show with David Mellor - Saturday 12 July 2014

David Mellor previews a quintessentially English work, played by a Swedish orchestra under a Finnish conductor.

This week David Mellor features a great recording of Elgar’s Symphony No.1, conducted by Sakari Oramo, the Finnish conductor who has been all but adopted by British music-lovers and orchestras. For ten years he was music director of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra.

David also showcases a couple of bargain-priced new releases of choral music and a very special boxed set, The Complete Maria Callas Studio Recordings not due for release until September.
