Classical Journey Tuesday 4 October

Pianist Joyce Clarke
Leaving the Phonic FM studio
after a full programme
of musical memories
What a lovely time we had on the last 'Classical Journey'. Joyce Clarke (left) shared her music and memories - both of her own musical career as an operatic pianist, and of her father Harold Noble and his work as a professional composer and conductor.

More of Joyce's music has been requested - she has been an inspiration to so many pianists in the audience. We have a perfect piece to reflect the happy married life of Joyce and of her parents - Edvard Grieg's 'Wedding Day at Troldhaugen' - played by Joyce herself - what could be better?

Other musicians have caught the eye - and ear - of the 'Journey' over the past weeks, and we shall be enjoying their music too.
