Really thrilled to be asked to be on Jess Gillam’s fantastic BBC Radio 3 programme “This Classical Life”. I adore Radio 3 and Jess’ programme is one I love to listen to, so it was especially excited to be a part of this one! We swapped a few of our favourite tracks and talked about music in general… among other things I confessed my love for Goldfrapp’s Felt Mountain album and why Duke Ellington’s version of The Nutcracker is never off the record player in our house..
