Actress Nichola McAuliffe chooses a personal selection of musical "forgotten gems": composers and performers whose fame was enormous in their lifetimes but whose names may have slipped from our 21st-century memories. The programme includes music by Meyerbeer, Graupner, Dittersdorf, Myaskovsky, Rutland Boughton, Chevalier de Saint-Georges and Pauline Viardot and performances by pianist Alfred Cortot, sopranos Dora Labette, Dame Isobel Baillie and Mary Thomas and tenor William Heddle Nash.
