Petroc Trelawny presents a selection of music and guests from the arts world, and is joined by organist Jennifer Bate ahead of her 2008 Prom featuring works by her former teacher, Olivier Messiaen. Soprano Karita Mattila discusses performing in a concert with the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra and Sakari Oramo at the Edinburgh International Festival 2008. And as Errollyn Wallen's Songbook is being staged as a narrative for the first time as part of the 2008 Grimeborn opera season, the composer and four emerging opera singers perform songs from the work live in the studio.
