Vincent d'Indy (1851-1931)

Part Four

Thursday 24 January 2008 12:00-13:00 (Radio 3)

Repeated: Thursday 24 January 2008 20:45-21:45 (Radio 3)

Donald Macleod explains how d'Indy's music school, the Schola Cantorum, nearly went bust, but stayed afloat thanks to his titanic efforts. Personal tragedy struck when his wife Isabelle died from a brain haemorrhage - his orchestral work Souvenirs became a moving tribute to her.

Duration:

1 hour
