Bach and Mozart

Pianist Benjamin Grosvenor and Britten Sinfonia Leader Thomas Gould join forces for a vividly contrasting programme of chamber music from Bach to the 21st century.

Recorded at Milton Court, London

Presented by Ian Skelly

Pianist Benjamin Grosvenor directs Britten Sinfonia in Bach and Mozart from the keyboard in this eclectic and illuminating programme of music spanning almost 300 years.

Thomas Gould leads the orchestra in two Schubert-inspired works by the award-winning Bulgarian-born composer Dobrinka Tabakova, and also directs a new composition, supported by the William Alwyn Foundation, by Robin Haigh, who recently won a British Composer Award.
