Imogen Cooper

Duration:
1 hour
First broadcast:
Monday 04 July 2011

Live from London's Wigmore Hall pianist Imogen Cooper begins her recital with four mini-masterpieces by Debussy. The centrepiece of her programme is one of Beethoven's darker piano sonatas (sometimes known as the 'Tempest' sonata) and she ends with two of Chopin's finest works - a dreamy Nocturne and the glorious final Ballade.
