Sara Mohr-Pietsch presents Radio 3's classical breakfast show, celebrating the Baroque Spring season. We commence the Breakfast Forty-Eight - a daily morning dose of the 48 Preludes and Fugues of J.S. Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier. As part of Breakfast's Musical Map of Britain, running throughout 2013, Breakfast will be asking listeners to highlight Baroque connections to their area of the UK.
