presented by Sarah Walker
Sarah is joined by Tom Service for Schubert Lab, followed by a mini Lieder recital by Elly Ameling.
Sarah's guest today is director Jeremy Sams, who has chosen music with a domestic setting. As well as Schubert's many songs, intended to be sung and played in the home, he composed a great deal of music for piano 4-hands, to be played by two pianists at one piano. Jeremy has fond memories of playing this uniquely intimate but still profound music.
Piano Sonata in A minor, D537
Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli (piano)
Today's Lieder advocate is Ian Bostridge, who introduces recordings of some of his favourite Schubert recordings.
