A star-studded programme if ever there was one:

Arguably the world's leading contemporary music ensemble, the Kronos Quartet perform live in the studio as they embark on a week-long residency in London, performing at the Barbican, Wilton's Music Hall and Hackney Empire.

Star mezzo-soprano Alice Coote sings live in the studio with pianist Julius Drake ahead of their Wigmore Hall performances of Schubert's Winterreise.

Plus the Juilliard String Quartet play live and join presenter Sean Rafferty with pianist Stephen Hough to talk about their upcoming concert together at the Wigmore Hall.
