Myrthen Ensemble, Karim Said, Karita Mattila, Jon Boden

Presented by Sean Rafferty. With live music from Myrthen Ensemble, pianist Karim Said plus soprano Karita Mattila and composer/musician Jon Boden.

Presenter Sean Rafferty talks to star soprano Karita Mattila ahead of her Strauss performance, opening the Southbank Centre's The Rest is Noise festival. Live music from recently formed Myrthen Ensemble as it prepares for its Wigmore Hall debut. Pianist Joseph Middleton, among 'the cream of the new generation' (The Times), formed the Myrthen Ensemble in 2012 with four exciting young singers including mezzo Clara Mouriz and baritone Marcus Farnsworth to perform songs and lieder. They will perform live in the studio. As will young pianist Karim Said as he prepares for a trilogy of recitals at The Rest is Noise festival. Plus composer and lead singer of Bellowhead, Jon Boden, visits the studio to discuss the Royal Shakespeare Company's production of The Winter's Tale, for which he composed the music.
