Martinu Quartet, Cheryl Frances-Hoad, Nicholas Mulroy

Katie Derham's guests include the Martinu Quartet, who perform live in the studio, and tenor Nicholas Mulroy, who also sings live. Plus composer Cheryl Frances-Hoad.

Katie Derham presents a lively mix of music, conversation and arts news. Her guests include tenor Nicholas Mulroy, who sings live for us before heading north to Macclesfield, where he is performing Finzi's exquisite Dies Natalis with the Northern Chamber Orchestra. The Martinu Quartet stop off in the studio to play live for us in the middle of a mini-tour of the UK, and composer Cheryl Frances-Hoad joins us to talk about her new CD. She is joined in the studio by Tamsin Collison who is the librettist for Cheryl's new song-cycle, which receives its world premiere this week.
