CD of the week: Frantisek Benda – Violin Concertos

This week, Anne-Marie Minhall invites you to discover one of the 18th century’s most respected musicians: the Czech violinist and composer Frantisek Benda – who, it’s fair to say, isn’t exactly a household name nowadays.

Benda’s violin concertos are bright, lively and uplifting – making them the perfect choice for the Featured CD on Drive.

Hear something from this yet-to-be-released album every evening this week, at around 6.15.
