BBC Four presents an hour-long profile of one of Britain’s greatest ever classical pianists John Ogdon, which includes a look at the hugely successful musical partnership between Ogdon and his wife Brenda.

Featuring unique archive footage and contemporary performances, as well as candid interviews with those who knew him best, Brenda and daughter Annabel for the first time tell their personal story of the father, husband and genius that John Ogdon was.

Tracing the extraordinary success and the tragic despair, the documentary is a moving account of the Ogdons’ rollercoaster professional partnership, as well as a fascinating reflection of the power of music itself.
