Sean Rafferty presents live music and interviews from two up-and-coming performers in today's show.

The Marian Consort is a young vocal ensemble formed at Oxford University, and they are in the studio today throughout the show to perform a selection of unaccompanied Renaissance works ahead of a series of Christmas concerts.

Also performing live is the gifted Ukrainian violinist Valeriy Sokolov. He has been collecting plaudits for his playing and talks to Sean ahead of his first concerto release on CD and concerts with the Philharmonia and Vladimir Ashkenazy.
