Smooth Classics with Margherita Taylor 10pm - 1am
Classic FM's Tim Lihoreau has been speaking to all the stars at Classic FM Live ahead of their performances tonight. Here he talks to the brilliant British violinist Charlie Siem.
Charlie Siem, whose new album 'Charlie Siem – Bruch, Wieniawski, Ole Bull' was released in the UK in August, is a real star-in-waiting. His virtuoso playing has taken him all around the world, playing with the likes of the Royal Philharmonic, London Mozart Players, Israel Camerata and Moscow Philharmonic. He has also caught the attention of the pop world having been personally requested to perform for Lady Gaga earlier this year.
Charlie spoke to Tim Lihoreau backstage at the Royal Albert Hall ahead of his performance of the Finale from Bruch's Violin Concerto No.1 and Vaughan Williams' The Lark Ascending.
