A Lancashire Lad - Prog 5

From Summer Sonic, 12:00 pm on 13 January 2017

In this final show of the series, Indra Hughes begins and ends with a royal theme; we'll meet a few Iron Ladies, including the original Iron Lady herself, Margaret Thatcher. There'll be a piece that made Rachmaninov cry, and the beautiful song that Strauss wrote as a wedding present to his bride. We'll look in on Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden; and as always, there'll be a healthy dose of Bach and Handel.
