Music is the hidden arithmetical exercise of a mind unconscious that it is calculating.

Classical Star

We’ve now had the first episode of Classical Star. It’s been predictably controversial, with a slew of wonderful emails from colleagues and fans, and also a predictably horrible review from Norman Lebrecht (see post below for my reply – you can find Norman’s article by googling Lebrecht and Classical Star.)

For me what came over most strongly was the fantastic passion and dedication of the students.

What did you think of it?
