Suzy Klein - Springtime Special

Suzy Klein presents a special springtime edition of the programme.

Suzy Klein presents a special Springtime edition of BBC Radio 3's drivetime programme In Tune, live with an audience from the iconic Radio Theatre in BBC Broadcasting House.

Members of the acclaimed Aurora Orchestra are in residence throughout the programme, ahead of an appearance at the Camden Roundhouse's innovative Reverb Festival. They perform Richard Strauss's late masterpiece Metamorphosen, collaborate in a new arrangement of Scarborough Fair with one of folk music's most influential figures Martin Carthy, and also join up with a rising star of the operatic stage Noah Stewart, described as being "capable of conquering anyone through sheer charisma alone".

The pianist Peter Donohoe also performs live, ahead of his recital at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London, and the actor Samuel West reads Shakespeare and Seamus Heaney.
