Julian Rhind-Tutt

Michael Berkeley's guest is actor Julian Rhind-Tutt. His musical choices include a trumpet concerto by Telemann, plus works by Bach, John Hilton, Puccini, Mahler and Prokofiev.

Michael Berkeley's guest this week is actor Julian Rhind-Tutt, who starred as Dr 'Mac' McCartney in the comedy TV series 'Green Wing', and has since appeared in many other TV shows, including Mark Gatiss's 'The Crooked House', and most recently Agatha Christie's 'The Halloween Party'. He has appreared in blockbuster films such as Notting Hill, Tomb Raider and Stardust, and recently appeared on stage in the supernatural thriller 'Darker Shores'.

Julian was born into a musical family, and plays cello and piano himself. His personal musical favourites include a trumpet concerto by Telemann, inspired by his older brother who is a professional trumpeter; three pieces by Bach played by artists he particularly admires(Tortelier playing the Prelude from Bach's Suite No. 6 in D for solo cello; Andras Schiff playing movements from the French Suite No.2 in C minor, and David Goode playing a chorale prelude on the organ of Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford); a Tudor anthem by John Hilton, which reminds him of his own early days as a choral singer; an extract from Puccini's 'La boheme' sung by Luciano Pavarotti, which was a favourite of his mother's; a song by Mahler; an excerpt from Prokofiev's ballet Romeo and Juliet, and - rather unexpectedly, the theme to Channel 4's News, which he likes for its enduring nature.
