Every Saturday night at 9pm-10pm, David Mellor reviews all the latest classical music releases.
David works his way through another pile of recently released albums awarding his Connoisseur’s Choice to a beautiful new album of opera arias. His Recording of Special Historical Significance is a box set of Beethoven conducted by Otto Klemperer and his Album of the Week is a brilliant performance of Schubert symphonies.
