Wayfaring Stranger

From Summer Sonic, 12:00 pm on 12 January 2017

Indra Hughes brings a personal approach to Summer Sonic with a strong West Auckland thread where this Lancashire lad now lives.

In this programme Indra reminisces about Andreas Scholl’s visit to Auckland in 2011 and plays 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.
