Smooth Classics with Margherita Taylor 10pm - 1am
David Mellor has music for Remembrance Sunday.
This week David Mellor marks Remembrance Sunday with a poignant show reflecting both the First and Second World Wars in classical music.
The programme includes music from British composers who were caught up in conflict and lost their lives - such as George Butterworth and Walter Leigh - as well as music that has found a special place in the nation’s heart during the war years and after.
The show will also feature a piece by Richard Strauss. Metamorphosen was written towards the end of the Second World War, shortly after the German composer visited the bombed-out ruins of Munich.
