Palestine Youth Orchestra, Menahem Pressler, Steven Osborne

Sean Rafferty's guests include members of the Palestine Youth Orchestra, plus pianists Menahem Pressler and Steven Osborne.

Sean Rafferty is joined in the studio by the remarkable nonagenarian pianist Menahem Pressler, who'll be performing and giving masterclasses at the Oxford Piano Festival. Another great pianist, Steven Osborne, plays for us live ahead of his BBC Proms appearance, as do members of the Palestine Youth Orchestra, who will be hot-footing from the studio to the Royal Festival Hall where they'll give their last concert of their first ever UK tour. Plus, as part of BBC Music's Get Playing campaign, every day this week we'll be featuring a recording sent in by amateur orchestras and ensembles from across the UK.
