Domingo, Carreras, Gorchakova exclusive material coming to GMN
Our second batch of seven includes Beethoven Symphonies Nos. 1 & 7 with Sir Roger Norrington and the OAE - performances of authentic brilliance; there's a Russian song and opera recital with the great Gorchakova; Mozart from (where else?) the Mainly Mozart Festival with David Atherton and Anne-Marie McDermott and co. in Schubert's Trout Quintet.

In the weeks and months to come, watch-out for Plácido Domingo live in Wroclaw, Poland, José Carreras live at London's Royal Albert Hall, Jan Diego Florez at the Wigmore Hall and a host of other superstars soon to be available on request.
