The World's Greatest Music
Notes from Hidden Britain, presented by Ben Fogle - a musical road trip where we paused each week at a familiar region of Britain to examine its less familiar musical history.
Scotland’s second city, Glasgow is the birthplace of a composer with a very un-Scottish name. Eugen d'Albert was a talented musician who in 1876, aged only 12, travelled to London to study. D'Albert eventually won the Mendelssohn (pictured) Scholarship giving him the opportunity to move to Vienna from where he launched a career as a composer and pianist.
