Monday - Sarah Walker
Sarah Walker presents music by Sullivan, Chabrier, Sibelius, Herrmann and Schubert.
To tie in with Angela Hewitt's appearance at the BBC Proms this Friday, Sarah Walker explores the distinguished career of this Canadian-born pianist. Although at the Proms Hewitt will join other musicians to perform Brahms' Piano Quartet No 1, she is best known as a Bach interpreter of distinction. Sarah honours this enduring association with three Bach recordings of the Keyboard Concerto No 7, the French Suite No 6 and a selection from the Well-Tempered Clavier. Alongside these Sarah plays recordings of repertoire with which Hewitt is perhaps not so readily identified but which similarly showcases her pianistic prowess: Chopin's Nocturne, Chabrier's Impromptu, Ravel's Sonatine and Beethoven's Piano Sonata in C minor, Op 13, otherwise known as his Pathetique.
