BBC Radio 3’s weekly guide to the best new classical recordings comes to Sage Gateshead, presented by Andrew McGregor. Exploring the Free Thinking Festival theme of Emotion, Andrew and guests hear how fashions in performance practice have changed over the last century of recorded sound and ask how and why modern ears have become estranged to older generations’ musical expression.

In Building a Library Ivan Hewett compares recordings of Shostakovich’s Piano Quintet and picks a favourite.

Andrew McGregor is a former violinist and countertenor who worked in the classical record industry before becoming Record Review’s presenter 20 years ago. He also presents concerts, operas and Proms on Radio 3.
