Throughout the week Classic FM’s presenters bring you the best new recordings, including world exclusives and premiere broadcasts of latest releases.
John Suchet plays a track from his featured Album of the Week at 10.15am every weekday.
Camille Saint-Saëns' well-known ‘Organ’ Symphony has a fresh and dramatic makeover in this new recording by conductor Thierry Fischer, the Utah Symphony and organ soloist Paul Jacobs. It's joined by a little-known Saint-Saëns orchestral work, ‘Trois tableaux symphoniques d'apres La Foi’. The album also features an orchestral ‘Bacchanale’ from Saint-Saëns' most famous opera, Samson et Delilah.
For a selection of new Saint-Saëns discoveries and well-loved classics, look no further than this album.
John Brunning plays a track from his featured Drive Discovery at 6.20pm every weekday.
This album comprises a selection of musical gems by English composers, including Ralph Vaughan Williams, Edward Elgar, Frederick Delius and Frank Bridge. Among them are Vaughan Williams' 6 Studies in English Folk Song arranged for cello and piano, Delius' Romance for Cello & Piano and Ernest Moeran's Irish Lament.
Gerald Peregrine on the cello and Antony Ingham on piano have created a delightful collection of music inspired by folksong, English folk heritage and the countryside with Folk Tales.
