Throughout the week Classic FM's presenters bring you the best new recordings, including world exclusives and premiere broadcasts of latest releases. John Suchet's Album of the Week presents a track from his featured Album of the Week at 10.15am every weekday.

Charles Richard-Hamelin delights CLASSIC fM with a recording of Chopin's two concertos for piano and orchestra, with the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal and conductor Kent Nagano. These vibrant concertos were written when Chopin was in his early 20s, and Charles Richard-Hamelin brings the vibrancy from the paper to the piano in this energetic recording of the two works.  Starting today, tracks from the album will be played every day on CLASSIC fM, broadcasting to 5.3 million listeners tuning in every week, according to Radio Joint Audience Research in the U. K.
