Hear Alfie Boe's 100 Best Tunes Tonight

Alfie Boe is currently in the middle of his Bring Him Home Concert Tour and tonight you can hear him on BBC Radio2 at 8.00 pm presenting a selection of Your Hundred Best Tunes plus a few of his personal favourites from the worlds of opera, operetta and film.

Alfie Boe's selection includes recordings by Richard Tauber; Maria Callas; Richard Crooks and Caruso's 1902 recording of "Vesti La Guibba which became the first record to sell one million copies. His orchestral choices are taken from the last listeners' poll carried out in 2003 and include excerpts from Ralph Vaughan Williams' "The Lark Ascending", Bedrich Smetana's "Ma Vlast" and Rachmaninov's "Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini".
