Friday - Sean Rafferty

Sean Rafferty guests include conductor and violinist Nikolaj Znaider and Spanish conductor Pablo Heras-Casado. And pianist Melvyn Tan performs live in the studio.

Presented by Sean Rafferty.

Sean talks to the acclaimed Danish violinist Nikolaj Znaider who has added conducting to his musical portfolio. Recently appointed by the Swedish Chamber Orchestra as principal guest conductor, Znaider is at the Barbican making his London conducting debut with the London Symphony Orchestra.

Pianist Melvyn Tan performs live in the studio ahead of a solo recital in Truro and a performance of the Ravel Piano Concerto with the Arensky Chamber Orchestra. Tan has had a hugely successful and varied career, ranging from touring with Beethoven's own fortepiano, to preparing pianos himself for Gamelan inspired works by John Cage.

Andalusian born conductor Pablo Heras-Casado is one of the most sought after young conductors around having just made his debut with the Berlin Philharmonic and boasting upcoming engagements with the LA Philharmonic, Tonhalle Orchestra and San Francisco Symphony. He talks to Sean live from Manchester ahead of a concert with the BBC Philharmonic.
