Nikolai Lugansky, Ruby Philogene

Suzy Klein presents, with guests from the arts world and live performances.

Russian pianist Nikolai Lugansky returns to this year's Edinburgh Festival in a recital with violinist Leonidas Kavakos, performing Janacek, Brahms, Stravinsky and Respighi. He speaks to Suzy down the line from the Festival to discuss this recital and his other ongoing projects.

Mezzo-soprano Ruby Philogene MBE has sung under some of the world's leading conductors since winning the Kathleen Ferrier Award in 1993. Her repertory is enormously wide-ranging, from Verdi to Handel, Ruth Crawford Seeger to Prokofiev. She will close this year's Happy Days Festival at Enniskillen in recital with Julius Drake, and performs songs from this programme live in the studio.

Main headlines are at 5pm and 6pm.
