Throughout the week Classic FM's presenters bring you the best new recordings, including world exclusives and premiere broadcasts of latest releases. Don't miss John Suchet's - Album of the Week. John plays a track from his featured Album of the Week at 10.15am every weekday. This week he's featuring Daniil Trifonov – Destination Rachmaninov – Departure, the first album in Trifonov's latest project with Deutsche Grammophon. Trifonov explores Rachmaninov's cycle of piano concertos. He takes on the challenging concertos with the Philadelphia Orchestra and its music director Yannick Nézet-Séguin. This album includes Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto No. 2, his transcription of a solo Bach Partita for solo violin No. 3, and Trifonov's personal favourite, the Piano Concerto No. 4.

Also, John Brunning's Drive Discovery is featuring Libera's new releases this week, titled;  Beyond. Libera put an ambient spin on classics including Caccini's Ave Maria, Sanctus and The Prayer on this one. The young choral group from south London have already accumulated 50 million views on YouTube, performed for the Pope and President, and gained international success. This album follows the success of their last album, Hope, in 2017, and is a welcomed relaxing listen.
