Kopelman Quartet, National Orchestra of Korea, Man of Steel

Presented by Sean Rafferty. With live music from the Kopelman Quartet, plus Man of Steel composer Hans Zimmer with a preview of the film's soundtrack.

With Zack Snyder's new Superman film, Man of Steel, about to hit the big screen, Sean Rafferty's guests today include composer Hans Zimmer with a preview of music from the film. At first glance, The National Orchestra of Korea look like any other symphony orchestra. Look more closely and you will notice that although they set themselves up on stage in the manner of a traditional symphony orchestra, they mostly play on traditional Korean instruments. We'll hear from conductor Won Il about their forthcoming concert at the Barbican.Also today, live music from the Kopelman String Quartet as they prepare for a busy summer tour. Main headlines are at 5pm and 6pm. In.Tune@bbc.co.uk@BBCInTune.
