Steven Isserlis (cello) and Connie Shih (piano) in Britten: Cello Sonata in C, Op 65. Plus John Mark Ainsley and Malcolm Martineau in Britten: The Holy Sonnets of John Donne.

In this week's series of four concerts, a distinguished line-up of singers and accompanists perform some of Benjamin Britten's most ambitious and searching works for voice and piano. Cellist Steven Isserlis and pianist Connie Shih provide contrast in the shape of the composer's complete works for cello and piano.

Recorded last December at Wigmore Hall, London, as part of their series 'Britten Birthday Centenary: 'Before Life and After'.
