Let's talk about it

Once again, the BBC proves that there's a huge difference between mere complaining and actually changing something. For years, many have asked for more education in the classical music business and the English broadcasters now deliver. Their series "Discovering Music" looks at how a composer does his job and how his or her pieces take shape. After listening to parts of the work, the presenter of each programme analyses the music, giving his view on what the composer was trying to tell us. Because of this subjectivity, the show is of great interest to newcomers, but also for experts who would like to have their own views and opinions challenged. Yasuo Shinozaki will be recording Sibelius Symphony No 7 on may 13th for a future session with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra and older programmes have featured just about every important composer of the last 300 years. And as part of the excellent BBC online service, you can actually listen to these broadcasts entirely for free on your pc!
