Lorcan Murray's Classic Drive Monday 1 June 2020
Lorcan's CD pick this week is Dvorák: Cello Concerto, the latest album from cellist Kian Soltani. Maestro Daniel Barenboim and the Staatskapelle Berlin accompany Kian Soltani in the concerto, while for the other pieces (three of which have been arranged by Kian Soltani himself) he is joined by six cellists of the Staatskapelle Berlin.
This year marks the 250th anniversary of the birth of Ludwig Van Beethoven. We're joining in the worldwide celebrations by playing 250 Beethoven pieces over 250 days! We begin on Monday 27th January so tune in to Classic Drive every weekday to hear our favourite Beethoven works - and don't forget to send us your suggestions too!

So he is delighted to be going back to black at 33rpm, every Thursday at 6.30pm when you can hear some of the best new releases and classic recordings on vinyl.
