Pretty Yende, Matthew Herbert, Martin Yates

Sean Rafferty's guests include electronic musician Matthew Herbert ahead of his new work 20 Pianos at the New Music Biennial, with performances around the UK starting in Oxford. Herbert says the work tells the story of 20 unique pianos from around the world, from Steinways at Abbey Road or Sydney Opera House, to battered primary school pianos or forgotten out-of-tune family pianos, sampling sounds from each of them.
Also today, soprano Pretty Yende sings live in the studio, and conductor Martin Yates drops by to tell Sean about the English Music Festival.

Main headlines are at 5pm and 6pm.
