About Johann Sebastian Bach

Harriet Cohen (1895-1967) studied at the Royal Academy of Music, London, before quickly gaining a reputation as a Bach specialist. She was also strongly associated with British music of the period and was the dedicatee of numerous contemporary works, including the last six pieces in Bartok's Mikrokosmos, Vaughan Williams's Piano Concerto, and most of Bax's piano music. Harriet received various honours and awards, among them a CBE in 1938 and a Freeman of the City of London in 1954. David Owen Norris is a pianist, broadcaster, teacher, and composer. The first recipient of the Gilmore Artist Award, he has achieved international acclaim as a concert pianist, recording a rich variety of music as both a soloist and accompanist. Norris has also presented a number of radio series, including BBC Radio 4's Playlist.show more
