The New Releases Show - Saturday 6 June 2015, 9pm

Join David Mellor as he offers an hour of great music from recently released albums.

This week David’s showcasing a new recording of Beethoven's Violin Concerto, performed by the Belgian violinist Augustin Dumay. Also included on the album is Beethoven's spirited Eighth Symphony of 1812. Dumay brings out all of Beethoven's humour, especially in the work's concluding moments. 

Also to be enjoyed is the new release from Swedish soprano Miah Persson, who is in great demand with the world's major opera houses and orchestras.
 
And David has selected some fascinating re-issues on the Warner Classics label, including Gershwin given the authentic American treatment by André Previn.
