We'll sample a pair of new releases on this week's show, including 'Il Genio Inglese'. This recording by Ground Floor and violinist Alice Julien-Laferrière highlights the musical activities of Nicola Matteis, the Neapolitan violinist who enthralled music-loving London with his playing. We'll also hear organist Aude Heurtematte play a new organ built especially for early music, located in Champcueil, France.
