Classic FM’s Discovery of the Week
La Muse Oubliée II – Antonio Oyarzábal (IBS)

Every weekday with Margherita Taylor, 6.15pm

Margherita Taylor’s Discovery of the Week is the second part of pianist Antonio Oyarzábal’s ongoing exploration of music written by female composers. Most of the 18 composers on the album are still largely unknown, and Oyarzábal expertly delivers ‘justice to this repertoire and its authors’ through the exhilarating performance of their music.
