A Classical Collection Programme 5

From Summer Sonic, 12:00 pm on 6 January 2017

At home, David Morriss has some real treasures in his record collection and here he shares with us a personal selection of the rare, the exquisite and the sometimes astounding.

Baroque Bolivia; a mystery composer; Beethoven recorded deep in the heart of Nazi Germany; Carnival of the Animals with animal sounds from the New York Zoo. Is this a grand finale, or a mad concoction?

Bonus tracks:
