Top 5 Myths about Classical Music

June 16, 2021

Our guest this week is the superstar harpsichordist, organist, writer and commentator Mahan Esfahani and he's got a few things to get off his chest about the classical music industry.

Mahan chooses his Top 5 Myths about Classical Music - those oft-accepted views, approaches and ideas in music that can remain unchallenged. Why should a composer's wishes always be respected? Is every work we hear on radio really a masterpiece? Is fame and talent really down to just good PR?

A wide-ranging discussion about many key issues in the classical music world. 
With Tommy Pearson, Richard Bratby and Charlotte Gardner. 

 

Producer: Simon Funnell
