Richard Reed Parry of Arcade Fire and André de Ridder discuss ‘Snowflakes are Dancing’ by Japanese musician Isao Tomita. The album features arrangements of Debussy’s tone paintings, including Clair de Lune and The Girl with the Flaxen Hair.

The interview was part of the Spitalfields Music Festival and the festival curator, composer and conductor André de Ridder joined in the conversation to discuss how classical music has found and continues to find new avenues to reach wider audiences through dramatic reinterpretations.
