The Critic's Chair for 6 October 2013

From The Critic's Chair, 12:00 pm on 6 October 2013

This week on The Critic's Chair, Peter Mechen takes us to Florence with the Emerson String Quartet's new recording Journeys, and indulges in a recording of Beethoven's late piano sonatas, featuring the young pianist Igor Levit. We also hear the song cycles of Mahler performed by baritone Christian Gerhaher, and a recent New Zealand recording Tui, featuring the Auckland-based piano quartet Estrella.
