Smooth Classics with Margherita Taylor 10pm - 1am
David Mellor takes a summer excursion to the musical shores of Italy.
Tonight, David explores the music from a country that has inspired, or been the birthplace of, some of the greatest classical works ever written.
And listen out for some little known music from composer Giuseppe Martucci, who was very influential in reviving the Italian’s interest in non-operatic music, and who as a conductor helped to introduce Wagner's operas and English music to Italian audiences.
