Chamber music by Purcell, Haydn and Beethoven performed by mezzo-soprano Anne-Sofie von Otter, cellist Nicolas Altstaedt and the Minetti Quartet.
This week's Lunchtime Concerts - presented by Hannah French - come from The Frick Collection art museum in New York, where an annual series of chamber music recitals has been held for the past 78 years in its sumptuous music room.
In today's programme, cellist Nicolas Altstaedt and pianist Alexander Lonquich perform Beethoven's 7 Variations on "Bei Männern welche Liebe fühlen", the Minetti Quartet plays Haydn's "Sunrise" quartet, Op.76 No.4 and there are songs by Purcell and even Kate Bush songs from mezzo-soprano Anne-Sofie von Otter with lutenist Thomas Dunford and keyboard player Jonathan Cohen.
Throughout the week, Hannah is at the Frick Collection, and talks to Chief Curator Xavier Salomon about some of the paintings in the museum, including Vermeer's "Girl Interrupted at her Music".
