The Critic's Chair for Sunday 8 September 2013
The Critic’s Chair this week explores a new recording of Dvorák’s Symphony No. 9 ‘From the New World’, which Robert Johnson labels “second to none”. You’ll also hear Portuguese pianist Maria João Pires and her latest disc of Schubert sonatas, and a potpourri of flute works by the phenomenal Sharon Bezaly. And if you love Sibelius, you might also love the Helsinki Phil’s latest recording of Madetoja’s 2nd Symphony.
