Monday - Sarah Walker
With Sarah Walker. Mendelssohn: Hebrides Overture. Bruch: Adagio on Celtic Themes. Vivaldi: Autumn (Four Seasons). Strauss: Stimmungsbilder (Nos 1 and 2). Chausson: Poeme.
In Classical Collection this week, Sarah's Artist of the Week is the best-selling classical violinist of all time, Nigel Kennedy, whose long and varied career, along with his distinctive public persona, has never failed to spark widespread interest. Following Kennedy's performance of Bach's works at the BBC Proms on the 6th August Sarah Walker delves into Kennedy's discography, which today includes an excerpt from one of the best-selling recordings ever made, Vivaldi's Four Seasons. Alongside this, Sarah plays Kennedy's recording of Chausson's Poeme.
