Hilliard Ensemble, James Ehnes, Patrick Kinmonth, Mary Bevan

Presented by Sean Rafferty. With live music from the Hilliard Ensemble, violinist James Ehnes and soprano Mary Bevan.

Sean Rafferty welcomes The Hilliard Ensemble onto the show today: the acclaimed British vocal quartet, formed 40 years ago to specialise in early music. They'll be chatting about their 40th birthday celebrations, and performing live in the studio.

Acclaimed violinist James Ehnes plays live ahead of his performance of the Shostakovich Violin Concerto with BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. Plus, rising-star soprano Mary Bevan sings music from Haydn's Creation live in the studio as she prepares for her role in The Creation Project - an event to involve and inspire young people to engage with classical music, culminating with a staged performance of Haydn's oratorio The Creation in Ambika P3, a disused concrete factory under London's Marylebone Road. Sean also talks to project director Patrick Kinmonth.

Main headlines are at 5pm and 6pm.
