Hear Jamie Barton, new "Singer of the World"

Tune in this afternoon to hear a sample of the art of Jamie Barton - the Georgia farm girl who yesterday won the prestigious BBC Cardiff Singer of the World crown. Also on Barney Sherman's show: a glorious recent Beethoven "Pastoral" Symphony, a Mozart Piano Concerto from the new set by Ronald Brautigam, dances that Lully wrote for one of his collaborations with Moliere, a suite from a ballet by Nino Rota, Le Moliere imaginaire, and a new live recording of the Berlin Philharmonic and Sir Simon Rattle in the Stravinsky ballet that is least like The Rite of Spring - the serenely beautiful Apollo, Conductor of the Muses.

American mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton, who yesterday was crowned BBC Cardiff Singer of the World. Congratulations, Jamie!
