Music Matters

Is classical music for everyone? Should you have to apply yourself to something to enjoy it? Does classical music deserve the ‘preferential’ funding it receives?

These and other questions are discussed in a fast-paced debate. The panel, chaired by Tom Service includes: Birmingham Opera Company’s founder and artistic director, Graham Vick; Paul Morley, ex-NME writer and author turned contemporary classical composer; Zoë Martlew, cellist, educationalist, avant-cabaret-artist, blogger, and commentator and Kathryn Tickell, Northumbrian pipes virtuoso and no slouch on the fiddle.

The debate, which forms part of Radio 3’s Free Thinking Festival, can be heard here.
