Alina Ibragimova, John Niven, The war memorials of Edwin Lutyens and Nicki Wragg, Backstage in the wardrobe

Kirsty Lang meets the brilliant young Russian Alina Ibragimova - the violinist whose solo Bach recitals were a highlight of this year's Proms - who talks about on her new recording of Bach's Violin Concertos. And why she doesn't get nervous. Kill Your Friends, a film about the cutthroat nineties music industry, is released this week. Kirsty speaks to John Niven, who adapted the semi-autobiographical novel for the screen. Edwin Lutyens is famous for designing the Cenotaph. Less known is that the great British architect also designed 44 war memorials, to be found in towns and villages all over the country. Today it has been announced that all of them will be listed, and so protected, and that the government is providing £2.5 millions for the restoration and maintenance of our war memorials. Roger Bowdler, Director of Listings at Historic England considers the aesthetic and social importance of Lutyens' memorials, and explains the new initiative which will involve people caring for their local memorials. As part of the BBC On Stage Season, Front Row goes backstage to eavesdrop on what happens in the crucial half hour before a show begins. Tonight, Nicki Wragg, who manages Wardrobe for Home, the new theatre in Manchester, describes her routine for making sure that everyone has the clothes, even the tattoos, that they need and that everything is in the right place for the quick changes, before the show starts. Producer: Julian May (Photo: Alina Ibragimova. Image courtesy Eva Vermandel).…read more
