Thomas Dunford and Iestyn Davies, Pekka Kuusisto, Nancy Carroll

Sean Rafferty presents, with live music from lutenist Thomas Dunford and countertenor Iestyn Davies, and also Finnish violinist Pekka Kuusisto. Plus actor Nancy Carroll.

Sean Rafferty presents a lively mix of chat, arts news and live performance. Live music today comes from lutenist Thomas Dunford and countertenor Iestyn Davies, who both have forthcoming London recitals, though not together: Thomas plays at Wigmore Hall tomorrow and Iestyn performs at Milton Court with Fretwork next week. The inimitable Finnish violinist Pekka Kuusisto also plays live for us, before joining forces with Vladimir Ashkenazy and the Philharmonia Orchestra for concerts in Cardiff and London. Plus actor Nancy Carroll chats to us about David Hare's play The Moderate Soprano, which is currently running at the Duke of York's Theatre in London's West End.
