Martino Tirimo, Diotima Quartet, Tim Albery, James Laing

Sean Rafferty is joined by pianist Martino Tirimo and the Diotima Quartet. Plus director Tim Albery and singer James Laing on Monteverdi's The Coronation of Poppea at Opera North.

Sean Rafferty plays host to the Diotima Quartet, a young string quartet celebrated for its performances of the classical canon and for championing new music. They'll be performing live in the studio ahead of their debut at London's King's Place.

Returning to the popular London venue this week is British-Cypriot pianist Martino Tirimo, who will be performing his celebrated recital of Chopin pieces.

Sean also hears from opera director Tim Albery and countertenor James Laing who talk about Opera North's brand new production of Monteverdi's The Coronation of Poppea.
