Sarah Walker presents all of Chopin's Nocturnes in the order he composed them, performed by famous Chopin pianists from the early 20th century to the present day. With insights in conversation from pianists including Garrick Ohlsson and Llyr Williams.

The programme concludes with Chopin's only work for piano and two other instruments - the Piano Trio in G minor, Op 8, that he composed as a precocious teenager in his native Poland.
