On Classics of the Phonograph this week two British pianists of the mid-20th century will be featured. The mysteriously named "Solomon" was famous for his Beethoven Concerto readings, and Clifford Curzon was a renowned expert on Mozart Piano Concertos.

On Classics of the Phonograph, Saturday at 11 am on WILL-FM, we will hear samples of their artistry.
