Jamie talks to Canadian pianist, Stewart Goodyear, about 'Rhapsody In Blue' and Chineke!

Jamie talks to Canadian pianist and composer, Stewart Goodyear, about his new album with conductor Wayne Marshall and the Chineke! Orchestra. Stewart has taken inspiration from his Caribbean roots and has written and recorded a new work, called 'Callaloo', along with a vibrant interpretation of Gershwin's much-loved classic, 'Rhapsody In Blue'. Journalist and broadcaster, Nicky Campbell, selects this week's 'My Music' - a beautiful piece by Verdi that converted him into an opera lover. Plus, Classics Unwrapped has an exclusive recording of the Arod Quartet performing at the Queen's Hall in Edinburgh as part of the recent New Town Concert Series.
