Desert Island Discs with Louisa Stanway

louisa

"I hope you’re all keeping well in this slightly bizarre time. I’ve put together a collection of my favourite recordings and albums and have really enjoyed comparing discs to find recordings that I find the most life enhancing. Although some of these pieces may seem a little bleak, especially for now, I hope you can also enjoy their meditative qualities."
