Smooth Classics with Margherita Taylor 10pm - 1am
The debut album from a brilliant young pianist. John Suchet's Album of the Week, 27 January 2014.
Ji Liu's debut album showcases this brilliant young pianist's virtuoso playing in brand new recordings of ten of the most popular piano classics of all time.
From Liszt's Liebestraum No.3, through Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata, to Debussy's Clair de Lune, this recital is bound to bring Ji Liu's playing - which has already been winning acclaim around the world - to an even-wider audience.
Among the more unusual highlights to listen out for are the lyrical Autumn Moon Over the Calm Lake by Chinese composer Wencheng and a spectacular performance of Saint-Saens' Danse Macabre, based on the transcription of Liszt and Horowitz.
