Alexandra Dariescu, VOCES8, Kathryn Rudge and William Vann

Sean Rafferty presents a triple bill of live music from pianist Alexandra Dariescu, choral group VOCES8 and mezzo-soprano Kathryn Rudge with pianist William Vann.

Sean Rafferty presents a lively mix of music, conversation and arts news. Live music today comes from pianist Alexandra Dariescu, who looks forward to performing with the BBC Symphony Orchestra in their Total Immersion day dedicated to the music of sisters Lili and Nadia Boulanger. Choral group VOCES8 also perform live for us before their concert at Cadogan Hall in London. Plus we hear from William Vann, who will lead the first UK performance for over 65 years of Hubert Parry’s oratorio Judith at the Royal Festival Hall on Wednesday, and mezzo soprano Kathryn Rudge gives us a taster live in the studio.
