As the Piano Season on the BBC draws to a close, today's In Tune has no less than three pianists, each performing live in the studio.

Lucy Parham will be here with British actor Dominic West, star of US hit series The Wire, as they prepare for a series of recitals combining piano music and readings on the life and loves of French impressionist composer Claude Debussy.

Former Radio 3 New Generation Artist Ashley Wass is currently touring with a recital including a piano transciption of Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony - he'll play some of it live.

And, with the London Jazz Festival fast approaching, we have live performance from cool Armenian jazz pianist Tigran Hamasyan.

In Tune's Piano A-Z concludes today with Z for Zany. The series of bite-sized features, part of the Piano Season on the BBC, includes contributions from many of the world's greatest pianists, and provides context, history and background information - both in-depth and quirky - broadcast in daily instalments on In Tune at 5.30pm and available to download as a podcast.

Main headlines are at 5pm and 6pm.
