But it's not really "Building a Library", is it? It's not called that in the Schedule, and is described:
"09.30 Bruckner Symphonies: Julian Johnson assesses some recent releases of recordings new and old including..."
It's just 'New Releases' re-timed (e.g. last weekend:
"10.25 New Releases: Mahler. Edward Seckerson joins Andrew to discuss new and recent releases of Mahler recordings, including.....")
Looks to me as if they were short of a BAL reviewer, or someone didn't produce their 'Building a Library' analysis in time, and they just bunged Julian Johnson a handful of new releases and said: "fill in".
Don't get me wrong, I'll look forward to it. But it's a pity someone isn't doing a proper BAL number on the particular symphony of which there are 3 recent releases listed, No 8
