Nikolai Demidenko, Trio Goya, Peter Brathwaite

Internationally-acclaimed pianist Nikolai Demidenko plays live in the studio ahead of his concert at the Wigmore Hall. Renowned for his authoritative performances of Russian piano concertos, particularly those of Prokofiev, Rachmaninoff and Tchaikovsky, he discusses with Sean his growing love for Schubert's Improumptus.

Fortepianist Maggie Cole and cellist Sebastian Cole from the Trio Goya join Sean Rafferty in conversation, discussing the new colours and narratives they are finding in Haydn and Mozart.

And up-and-coming baritone Peter Brathwaite performs songs by Benjamin Britten and Hubert Parry, as he prepares to give his debut recital at Manchester's Bridgewater Hall.
