Jonathan Swain

Jonathan Swain's Sunday selection includes Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No 2, featuring pianist Beatrice Rana.

Looking forward to her appearance at the Proms this week, Jonathan Swain features pianist Beatrice Rana in a recording of Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No. 2 in G minor, Op. 16. And another pianist, Alexandre Kantorow, is the young artist of the week, playing music by Balakirev. Jonathan's "Classical Starters" are by Anders Hillborg and Gustav Holst, and the week's neglected classic is Job by Vaughan Williams. And there's also music from Byrd to Beethoven, by way of Telemann!
