Piano Concerto No. 2 in C Minor
Soloist: Vladimir Ashkenazy Orchestra: London Symphony Orchestra Conductor: Andre Previn
The castaway in Desert Island Discs this week is the actress Shirley-Anne Field. She'll be talking to Sue Lawley about her Dickensian upbringing in different children's homes in the North of England and her extraordinary success as an actress in the 1960s, when she starred in The Entertainer and Saturday Night and Sunday Morning. She'll also be reminiscing about her friendship with John F Kennedy and an ill-fated date with Frank Sinatra.
