Smooth Classics with Margherita Taylor 10pm - 1am
Friday, October 5: Our fortnight-long Great British Soloists series reaches the end of its first week.

There’s also the horn player David Pyatt performing a concerto by Richard Strauss, and a fine piece of organ music by Cesar Franck, played by Ian Tracey. Plus – the whole of Mozart’s Piano Concerto No.24, played by Mitsuko Uchida, a lady who was born in Japan but who took British citizenship prior to becoming a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire in 2009.
