Fugata Quintet, Anne-Sophie Mutter BBC Radio 3

Presented by Sean Rafferty.

The Fugata Quintet are a young Nuevo Tango ensemble who play the music of the Argentinian tango composer Astor Piazzolla in the style and instrumentation that the composer himself envisaged. They perform with this line-up – accordion, guitar, piano, double bass and violin – live in the In Tune studio.

Violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter shot to prominence aged only 13 after being spotted by conductor Herbert von Karajan and has since forged a stellar career and made a name for herself as a champion of contemporary music. She talks to Sean ahead of concerts with the London Symphony Orchestra as its featured artist this season.

Plus My Essential Symphony, with BBC Director General Mark Thomson.
