Friday - Sarah Walker

Sarah Walker presents music by Biber, Vivaldi, Schumann, Mendelssohn, Byrd and Bach.

To tie in with Angela Hewitt's appearance at the BBC Proms this evening, 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. Sarah honours this enduring association, today, with a recording of Bach's French Suite No 6. Alongside this Sarah plays Hewitt's recording of Schumann's Piano Sonata No 2 in G minor, Op.22.
