John's CD of the week: Spohr Symphonies Nos.8 and 10

Monday 31 January: Howard Shelley’s discs of Spohr symphonies with the Orchestra of Italian Switzerland have reignited interest in a composer who was once the most important in Europe, and particularly so in England, where he was worshipped by all of musical society.

John John Suchet all this week for music from this, our CD of the Week, which includes Symphonies Nos. 8 and 10, alongside the world premiere recording of Spohr’s Overture to The Lovers’ Duel.
