Rainer Hersch's Proms in the Pub


Roxanna Panufnik

Season 1, Ep. 6
What's it like to be asked to compose a new piece for the Proms? I don't know, but Roxanna Panufnik absolutely does, having had her commission 'Songs of Darkness, Dreams of Light ' played at the Last Night in 2018. We chatted about her Polish heritage, how her work draws on complementary religious traditions and I tested out on her my exciting new concept for a game show 'I Wrote It'. And Harry the Piano rounds things off with his jazzy take on Handel.
