Every Saturday night at 9pm-10pm, David Mellor reviews all the latest classical music releases.
David reviews recent releases and his Album of the Week is one of the many Wagner recordings that are out this year to mark his bicentenary.
David’s Connoisseur’s Choice is a Chandos release of overtures by Berlioz, and his Choice for the Curious is a re-release of Francis Poulenc’s Gloria and Stabat Mater, which will also feature in David’s show on Sunday evening because he’s dedicating 2 hours to the French composer who died 50 years ago on Wednesday.
