Vanessa Redgrave, Lawson Trio

Sean Rafferty is joined by Vanessa Redgrave, bass Laurent Naouri and Philippe Sands who perform excerpts from A Song of Good and Evil, a piece focused on the 1946 Nuremberg trial.

A war theme is threaded through today's In Tune.
First up comes a special marriage of actors and musicians when Sean welcomes Vanessa Redgrave, bass Laurent Naouri, and pianist Guillaume de Chassy as they prepare for A Song of Good and Evil at the Southbank. They'll be with lawyer Philippe Sands and together will perform excerpts from his original piece on the 1946 Nuremberg trial.
Philippe Sands' A Song of Good and Evil offers new insights into the conflict and connections between three men at the heart of the Nuremberg trial - Cambridge academic Hersch Lauterpacht, Polish prosecutor Raphael Lemkin, and Hitler's lawyer Hans Frank - with music that crossed the courtroom to connect prosecutors and defendant.

And in this commemorative year of World War One The Lawson Trio offers a taster of some of their Echoes of World War One project at King's Place, which explores chamber and vocal works written during during the conflict on both sides of the English Channel.

Main news headlines are at 5pm and 6pm.
