I was delighted to record an episode of the new podcast ‘Down with the Patri-Bachy’ with Ellie Ajao and Ben Richards at the weekend. Their podcast focuses on expanding our ideas of the classical canon via exploring composers who aren’t male/white/dead. Their first two episodes explored the music of Florence Price and Germaine Tailleferre.
For this, their third episode, I appeared as a guest to discuss concepts that surround the classical canon, including how we teach, and aesthetics of genius.
