Icelandic pianist Víkingur Ólafsson, Front Row’s Lockdown Artist in Residence, continues his weekly live performances from the empty Harpa Concert Hall in Reykjavik. Tonight he plays an energetic piece by the American minimalist composer Philip Glass, Etude No.9. What has been the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on our mental health and how might being creative at home help our mental wellbeing at this challenging time? Dr Daisy Fancourt is leading the UK’s biggest study looking at the impact the coronavirus crisis has had on our mental health.

And embroiderer Ekta Kaul and maker Joe Hartley discuss how their own practice has changed under lockdown, the online tutorials they’ve been running and how you can start making at home yourself. We mark the loss of the great afrobeat drummer Tony Allen whose death has been announced at the age of 79 with an interview for Front Row from 2014.
