Rachel Podger, Fitzwilliam Quartet, West-Eastern Divan Orchestra

Sean Rafferty speaks to Baroque violinist and director Rachel Podger, ahead of her appearance at the Three Choirs Festival. She will perform unaccompanied Bach in the studio.

The Fitzwilliam Quartet are one of the country's foremost ensembles. Formed in the 1960's, the group came to public attention with their recordings of Shostakovich. They will perform quartets by Shostakovich and Delius live.

And players from the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra tell Sean about the preparations they are making for their Beethoven symphony cycle at the Proms, under the baton of Daniel Barenboim.
