Sean Rafferty presents a selection of music and guests from the arts world.

The Navarra String Quartet perform in the studio ahead of their Haydn Celebration concerts. The quartet's debut CD and concerts, built around Haydn's Seven Last Words of Christ on the Cross, are to be illustrated by Australian artist Jamie Boyd.

Plus English National Opera's production of Mozart's Cosi Fan Tutte, first seen at 2008's Aix-en-Provence Festival. Sean talks to director Elaine Tyler Hall about her staging of the opera in London and mezzo-soprano Fiona Murphy (Dorabella) and tenor Thomas Glenn (Ferrando) perform in the studio.
