Juanjo Mena, Sacconi Quartet, Alison Balsom, Adrian Butterfield, Laurence Cummings
Chief Conductor of BBC Philharmonic Orchestra Juanjo Mena visits the studio, fresh from one BBC Proms performance and ahead of another, as he looks forward to conducting Ravel, Falla, Beethoven and a world premiere by John McCabe. We catch up with trumpeter Alison Balsom from Shakespeare's Globe Theatre where she is collaborating with the English Concert on Gabriel - a new theatrical and musical event written by playwright Samuel Adamson.
Live music from violinist Adrian Butterfield with Laurence Cummings on harpsichord exploring the music of French composer Leclair and the Sacconi String Quartet give us a preview of what to expect at the Bristol Proms this year. Plus we have live cabaret from singer Melinda Hughes and composer/pianist Jeremy Limb AKA Kiss & Tell before they take their new show 'French Kiss' to the Edinburgh Fringe.
