In a recital from St Mary's Church at Hay-on-Wye, pianist Ashley Wass performs a selection of piano works, including a set of three brilliant evocations by Frank Bridge. Then comes the popular Busoni arrangement of Bach's Chaconne, followed by ballet music by Sir Arnold Bax. The programme concludes with Schumann's stormy second Piano Sonata, which includes driving performance indications for the pianist, such as "faster" and "even faster".
