Piano Masters - Dame Imogen Cooper

Imogen Cooper continues her special relationship with Wells, and our exceptional young pianists, with a recital of Bach, Schubert and late Beethoven. Plus a recent work by Thomas Adès which its composer describes as "an explosion of John Dowland’s lute song 'In Darknesse Let Mee Dwell' "

Schubert: Reliquie Sonata D840

Schubert: Four Impromptus D899

J S Bach: Nun freut euch, lieben Christen g'mein (arr Kempff)

J S Bach: Nun komm den Heiden Heiland (arr Busoni)

Ades: Darknesse Visible

Beethoven: Piano Sonata no.31 in A flat major, op.110

‘Imogen is one of the greatest musicians England has ever produced. She's utterly without show. Mozart, Schumann and Schubert could have been written for her. There's a poetic, reflective side to her which is always there in her playing. It isn't Imogen's style to play to the gallery. She's not someone who goes in for fireworks in the rafters. But I can bet you that if I were to ask any orchestral musicians who they rate as one of the best Mozart pianists, three out of four of them will come up with Imogen's name first time around. Orchestral musicians are the toughest critics.' – Sir Simon Rattle
