Imogen Cooper in a piano recital from the Wigmore Hall, London. Debussy: Preludes, Book 2 (excerpts). Beethoven: Sonata, Op 31 No 2. Chopin: Nocturne, Op 27 No 2; Ballade, Op 52.

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.
