William Howard, Consortium5

Presented by Suzy Klein. With live music from pianist William Howard and recorder quintet Consortium5, plus British music expert David Owen Norris on composer Charles Dibdin.

Suzy Klein's guests include dynamic recorder quintet Consortium5. They'll be playing live in the studio ahead of their world premiere performance of REPLICA - a visually sumptuous experimental music-theatre work by Edward Jessen. And there's more live music from pianist William Howard, founder of the Schubert Ensemble, as he marks his 60th birthday with a recital at Spitalfields Festival.

Plus, to mark British Music month on Radio 3, we hear the first of four postcards in which pianist, broadcaster and British Music expert David Owen Norris introduces four neglected but fine English composers, and visits places in London where they lived and worked. Today, we meet composer Charles Dibdin in the West End theatres of 18th century London.

Main headlines are at 5pm and 6pm.
