Music of every style and flavour this week on In Tune - and possibly not enough room (even in cavernous studio 80A) to fit all the talent gracing the show this week.

Monday opened with a visit by arguably the world's greatest banjo player, Bela Fleck (left), performing part of his brand new Banjo Concerto for us live. Actor Samuel West popped in to talk Stravinsky and we explored the latest cutting-edge project to come out of one of London's top 'off-West End' venues: as the new opera Dream Hunter comes to Wilton's Music Hall. YIf you missed it, you can listen to the programme here.

More world-class appearances throughout the week from countertenor Andreas Scholl, pianist David Greilsammer, soprano Mhairi Lawson, the conductor Marin Alsop, violinist Tasmin Little and members of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, among others. (Phew - I'm going to lie down in a darkened room to get ready for it all...)

Hoping you'll join me for at least some of next week's musical bonanza - and don't forget to stay in touch with your thoughts on the music you love, the concerts you've been to and the performers who get your heart racing: @BBCInTune is where you'll find us on Twitter.

Looking forward to your company starting today at 4.30pm.
