  • Lara Melda piano

Lara Melda was the winner of BBC Young Musician 2010, and has won exceptional praise for her Chopin interpretations. Today’s BBC Radio 3 lunchtime programme pairs the composer’s final and most taxing sonata with two ‘study pictures’ by Rachmaninov from his Opus 33.

      • Etudes-tableaux Op. 33
        • Etude-tableau in G minor No. 8
        • Etude-tableau in E flat No. 7
  • Fryderyk Chopin (1810-1849)
      • Piano Sonata No. 3 in B minor Op. 58
