Marin Alsop, Mitsuko Uchida, Signum Quartet, Guy Johnston
Suzy Klein's guests include renowned pianist Mitsuko Uchida ahead of her recital at the Royal Festival Hall, top conductor Marin Alsop as she takes part in the Women of the World Festival and live music from the Signum Quartet - young string players from Germany and current members of Radio 3's New Generation Artists scheme - and cellist Guy Johnston with pianist Tom Poster as they prepare for a Jacqueline du Pre memorial concert at London's Wigmore Hall.
Also today, as part of Radio 3's Baroque Spring, In Tune presents the first in our week-long series of Baroque Masterclasses, each a different and personal insight into the music of the Baroque period from contributors including top artists such as violinist Daniel Hope and trumpeter Alison Balsom.
1/5 Daniel Hope plays the 1742 'Ex-Lipinski' Guarneri del Gesu violin. In this masterclass he talks about living and working with this precious instrument and gives us a very personal take on the violin music of the Baroque period.
