Angela Hewitt and Bach

Pianist Angela Hewitt plays a wide range of keyboard music, but she keeps coming back to one particular composer who has always felt like a great friend: Johann Sebastian Bach. We'll hear Hewitt in concert in suburban Atlanta, playing Bach's French Suite at the piano. Plus, a performance from a 2013 MacArthur Genius Grant award winner, pianist and writer Jeremy Denk, on Monday's Performance Today, from APM.
