Vivaldi, Lyapunov, Coates, The Beatles

A rare chance to hear the complete First Symphony by Russian Romantic Sergei Lyapunov in this week's request show, presented by Chi-chi Nwanoku. Elsewhere, there's Vivaldi's lush setting of the Beatus Vir, a slightly surprising guest request from Baroque violinist Simon Standage, and a familiar tune - albeit from a different 'request show' - by Eric Coates...
