Jessye Norman, Hakan Hardenberger, Roxanna Panufnik

Sean Rafferty presents a selection of music and guests from the arts world, including American soprano Jessye Norman and Swedish trumpeter Hakan Hardenberger.

Legendary American soprano Jessye Norman appears live on today's In Tune. Winner of numerous Awards including the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award for Classical Music and countless celebrated performances, Jessye Norman is one of the great Wagnerian sopranos of recent times.

Plus we have Swedish virtuoso trumpeter Hakan Hardenberger, described as "the cleanest, subtlest trumpet player on earth" performing live in the studio as he prepares to celebrate his 50th birthday at Cadogan Hall.

Not to be missed.

Plus our weekly feature where we challenge Team GB to train to classical music suggested by In Tune listeners
