Francesco Piemontesi, Notos Quartet and City of London Sinfonia

Katie Derham is joined by pianist Francesco Piemontesi, performing in the studio ahead of his recital as part of the Southbank International Piano Series. The Notos Quartet also plays live, and members of the City of London Sinfonia will be dropping by to discuss a new project based around bird song.
