06/05/2010 Roberto Prosseda, Rachel Podger

Presented by Sean Rafferty. With conversation and performances from pianist Roberto Prosseda, and baroque violinist Rachel Podger with the Royal Academy of Music Baroque Ensemble.

Presented by Sean Rafferty.

Sean is joined by the Italian pianist Roberto Prosseda, who discusses the close connections and friendships of the composers Mendelssohn, Robert and Clara Schumann, Liszt and Moscheles; a subject that he explores in his recital series, 'Leipzig, 1840', which he takes to Brighton and Crear this week. He performs works from the concert in the studio.

Also on the programme, baroque violinist Rachel Podger and musicians from the Royal Academy of Music Baroque Ensemble join Sean ahead of their concert at Wigmore Hall, London, this weekend and play music by Vivaldi in the studio.
