Jonathan Swain introduces Elgar's Cello Concerto in a recording by Alisa Weilerstein, plus Rachmaninov's Suite No 2 for Two Pianos. Plus music from mezzo-soprano Kate Lindsey.
With Daniel Barenboim focusing on Elgar at the Proms this weekend, Jonathan Swain includes Elgar's Cello Concerto today in a recording by Alisa Weilerstein, who herself appears in the 2017 Proms this coming Wednesday. And, picking up on the Proms theme of 'Classical Starters', Jonathan introduces Rachmaninov's Suite for Two Pianos No 2, Opus 17. The week's young artist is mezzo-soprano Kate Lindsey and today's neglected classic is E.J. Moeran's Symphony in G minor.
