Wayfaring Stranger

From Summer Sonic, 12:00 pm on 2 January 2015

Indra Hughes brings a personal programme to Summer Sonic with a strong West Auckland thread where this Lancashire lad now lives. He'll share music that is special to him, and chat about people he's worked with. There's Bach in unusual guises, rousing 'curtain-raisers' of romantic British music, Mel Tormé, relaxing and beautiful slow movements and tuneful eighteenth-century organ concertos.

In this programme Indra will reminisce about Andreas Scholl’s visit to Auckland in 2011 and play some tracks from his concert with him. Some unusual Mozart and part of a Chopin Piano Concerto will be enjoyable for listeners. Sir Hubert Parry’s “Symphonic Variations” are fantastic but rarely if ever heard on air.
