Presented by Sean Rafferty.
Violinist Jack Liebeck, having just been signed to a leading record label, performs live in the studio with pianist Katrya Apekisheva ahead of a recital in Edinburgh.

Students from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London are tackling Aulis Sallinen's opera The King Goes Forth to France. Cast members perform extracts and the conductor Clive Timms explains this unique Finnish take on a fictitious English history.
