Sean Rafferty's guests include baritone Simon Wallfisch, Anita Lasker-Wallfisch, conductor Clark Rundell and sarod player Soumik Datta.

Sean Rafferty's guests include baritone Simon Wallfisch and his grandmother Anita Lasker-Wallfisch, a cellist who played in the Women's Orchestra of Auschwitz, ahead of a public reading of Primo Levi's 'If This Is a Man' - his account of his survival of the Holocaust - interspersed with music, at London's Southbank Centre.

Conductor Clark Rundell comes to the studio ahead of the Barbican's 'Sound Unbound' festival weekend, and sarod player Soumik Datta plays live in the studio and talks about his new Channel 4 documentary in which he discovers the rich cultural and musical heritage of India in a year-long journey across the country with his brother.
