Wednesday - Sarah Walker

Sarah Walker presents music by Vivaldi, Beethoven, Sibelius, Ravel and Mendelssohn.

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: Ravel's Pavane pour une infante defunte and Beethoven's Cello Sonata in C with cellist Daniel Muller-Schott.
