Dinara Klinton on BBC Radio 3's In Tune
CMF Artist and pianist Dinara Klinton makes her BBC Radio debut on 'In Tune' presented by Sarah Walker. Dinara performed three pieces from her album of Liszt's Transcendental Etudes, released on 4th March before she chatted to Sarah. She spoke of how she practices a piece like she would  brush her teeth "every morning, for five minutes" to remove its scariness before finishing her experience on the show with the stunning Etude No.10 "Allegro agitato".
