Sunday 31st March
This week, Charlotte presents a special programme, in conjunction with Hello!
magazine, to celebrate Mothering Sunday. Over two hours, we’ll enjoy musical dedications and melodies inspired by mothers (and grandmothers!) across the centuries, from the fairy tales of Ravel, to the peaceful lullabies of Brahms and even a bunch of daffodils from Delibes.
This week, Charlotte’s Young Classical Star is the 15-year-old Hungarian pianist, Mihaly ‘Misi’ Boros.
With a musical sensitivity beyond his years, Boros has been claiming prestigious prizes across Europe since the age of eight, and rose to fame by winning the televised Hungarian classical music competition, Virtuosos. This afternoon, Charlotte shares a mesmerising live performance from his debut album.
