David Mellor
Album of the Week
The New Releases Show with David Mellor: Saturday 1 March 2014
A Schubert song cycle causes David Mellor a dilemma.

"Like taking the bus, you wait for one Schubert Winterreise then two come along at once," says David Mellor, who is tonight spoilt for choice with two great new recordings of Schubert's magnificent 24-song cycle for voice and piano.

Album of the Week

Schubert: Winterriese
Jonas Kaufmann/Helmut Deutsch

David's verdict: "Extremely good. Kaufmann is a very accomplished lieder singer."

Connoisseurs Choice

Schubert: Winterriese
Gerald Finley/Julius Drake

David's verdict: "I prefer the Kaufmann but this should take nothing away from a great Finley recording."
