Julian Lloyd Webber, James Ehnes, Andrew Armstrong

Presented by Sean Rafferty. With music from cellist Julian Lloyd Webber, celebrating Delius's 150th anniversary, and violinist James Ehnes with pianist Andrew Armstrong.

The cellist Julian Lloyd Webber joins Sean Rafferty in the In Tune studio ahead of a celebration of Delius' 150th anniversary with the Philharmonia Orchestra at the Southbank Centre. He will be performing works by the composer and John Ireland with his partner, cellist Jiaxin Cheng, accompanied by pianist Rebeca Omordia.

Violinist James Ehnes performs works by Beethoven and Bartok live in the studio with pianist Andrew Armstrong ahead of their appearance at the Wigmore Hall, London.
