Tuesday - Sean Rafferty

Presented by Sean Rafferty.

Sean is joined in the studio by Boston Musica Viva, the 40-year-old American contemporary music ensemble that, according to the Times, are adding "fun to the avant-garde mix" in a series of concerts at Kings Place, London, this week. They give us a preview of some of the works they are performing. Expect strings, woodwind, percussion - and "duelling melodicas"!

Also on the programme, pianist Martin Roscoe plays Chopin, Schubert and Beethoven ahead of his tour of the North of England with the Manchester Camerata this week, and talks about his new CD of Beethoven sonatas, which is released in May.
