2 hours
First broadcast:
Wednesday 12 June 2013

Sean Rafferty's guests include internationally renowned cellist Raphael Wallfisch. He'll be playing live in the studio with his trio, as he gears up for his 60th birthday celebration concert at London's Wigmore Hall.

There's more live music from Judy Carmichael - one of the world's leading interpreters of stride piano and swing, nicknamed "Stride" by none other than Count Basie for her mastery of this demanding jazz piano style.

Plus, we visit the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford to explore a new exhibition on the great Italian violin maker Antonio Stradivari and a specially assembled collection of his legendary violins.

Main headlines are at 5pm and 6pm.
