"Color is very important to me," Imogen Cooper tells Bill McGlaughlin this week on Saint Paul Sunday. "It's one of the first things I try to find." This Sunday the extraordinary pianist shows us why, imbuing her performances with a force and an infinitely hued elegance all her own. She'll bring us Ludwig van Beethoven's Sonata in c minor (Opus 10, No. 1), three of Johannes Brahms's poignant intermezzi, and the serenely charming Pavane for a Dead Princess—a program well-suited to the rare gifts of one of the world's great musical artists.

Ludwig van Beethoven: Sonata in c minor, Op. 10, No. 1
Maurice Ravel: Pavane pour une Infante Defunte
Johannes Brahms: Three Intermezzi, Op. 117

Songs My Father Taught Me
"I've never played anything I'm not in love with," says Pepe Romero this week on Saint Paul Sunday. Listen in to find out why. The acclaimed guitarist offers spellbinding performances of works his own father, the legendary Celedonio Romero, passed on to his son. The program opens with a noble fantasy by Luis Milán and includes atmospheric works by Tarrega, Albeniz, and Celedonio Romero himself. Each of the composers' works evokes a specific meaning for the younger Romero—he shares those insights with us too.
