Sean Rafferty presents a lively mix of music, conversation and arts news. Live music today comes courtesy of lutenist Matthew Wadsworth, who has two concerts next week at the North York Moors Festival: a recital with soprano Julia Doyle and a performance of Stephen Goss's new Theorbo Concerto, written for Matthew. Bass-baritone Neal Davies has two appearances at this year's BBC Proms, and he sings live for us in the lead up to the first of these, which takes place on Sunday with the BBC Symphony Orchestra. Today's interview guest is Martyn Brabbins who performs with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and Edinburgh Festival Chorus at the Edinburgh International Festival at Usher Hall this evening.
