Tuesday - Sarah Walker

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's Piano Quartet No 1, she is best known as a Bach interpreter of distinction. Today, however, Sarah plays recordings of repertoire with which Hewitt is perhaps not so readily identified but which similarly showcases her pianistic prowess: Chopin's Nocturne, Op.9 No.2 in E flat and Haydn's Piano Sonata in E flat.
