Clemency Burton-Hill presents a concert of music for strings performed by the Elias Quartet, first broadcast live from St Mary's Church, Hay-on-Wye, during the 2015 Hay Festival. Included in the concert are Haydn's String Quartet in C major Op 33, nicknamed 'The Bird' due to the twittering themes within the music, and Britten's String Quartet No 3, which the composer worked on whilst recovering from heart surgery.
