Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Catherine Bott

Imogen Cooper and Paul Lewis live at the BBC Proms with two great works by Schubert

Schubert: Piano Sonata in C minor, D958
Schubert: Piano Sonata in C major, D812 'Grand Duo'

Pianists Imogen Cooper and Paul Lewis return for the final Late Night Prom of the festival. Cooper plays Schubert's late, great Piano Sonata in C minor, its scherzo still informed by the Rossinian joie de vivre of the early symphonies, the surrounding movements infused with the sorrow and resignation of the song-cycles Winterreise and Schwanengesang. Published posthumously, the symphonically conceived Grand Duo dates from the summer of 1824 when the composer was engaged as music master to Marie and Caroline Esterhazy on the family's Slovakian estate.
