In Tune

Sean Rafferty presents a selection of music and guests from the arts world. Ahead of their Wigmore Hall recital, Academy of Ancient Music violinist Pavlo Beznosiuk and soprano Elin Manahan Thomas perform in the studio. The concert continues the Academy of Ancient Music's tour of Vivaldi's Four Seasons and baroque arias inspired by the forces of nature.

Soprano Nelly Miricioiu of the Chelsea Opera Group joins Sean in the studio to give listeners a preview and talk about their performance of Francesco Cilea's opera Adriana Lecouvreur at London's Queen Elizabeth Hall.
