Welcome to Monday! We brighten the start of your week with some new releases. (Here's a picture of the Wellington whale which seems to be brightening Wellingtonians' days at the moment).
1pm The man behind Rattle Records in NZ
Trevor Reekie talks to Steve Garden – the man behind New Zealand’s pre-eminent art music label, Rattle Records.
Germany has declared 2018 ‘The Year of the Cello’. So we thought we’d join in the celebrations this week on Upbeat by playing some of the best cello repertoire. Today it’s a stunning performance of Elgar’s Cello Concerto by cellist Alisa Weilerstein and the Berlin State Orchestra.
You can listen to a selection of RNZ recordings featuring the cello on our Music Alive Collections webpage.
