Wednesday - Sean Rafferty

Sean Rafferty presents music and guests from the arts world, including conductor Richard Kaufmann, harpsichordist David Wright with live music and Le Mystere Des Voix Bulgares.

Presented by Sean Rafferty.

Live traditional Bulgarian folk music in the studio from Le Mystere des Voix Bulgares, the all-female choir who received excellent reviews for their recent concert at the Barbican in London and are back for a UK tour.

Harpsichordist David Wright performs music by Bach, Handel and Ligeti live in the In Tune studio ahead of concerts at St Martin in the Fields, London.

Olivia Tiomkin Douglas and conductor Richard Kaufmann join Sean ahead of a concert at the Barbican with the London Symphony Orchestra celebrating the film music of Dimitri Tiomkin (1894- 1979), one of Hollywood's most distinguished composers. As the composer behind such memorable films as Lost Horizon, It's a Wonderful Life, High Noon, and The Alamo, Tiomkin enjoyed an enviable position in the American film industry. In the course of his career, Tiomkin received nearly two dozen Academy Award score and song nominations over five consecutive decades.
