Musician, composer, writer and director Matthew Herbert joins Classic Album Sundays’ founder and BBC Radio 6 Music host Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy, as part of Love Classical on Wednesday July 3rd 2019 at 7pm.
Tickets available here.
Colleen and Matthew will look at the relationship between classical and modern music, exploring how differences in the way music is produced and consumed today affects how it sounds.
“No one seems to wish to challenge the idea of what music can be – historically there have been all sorts of assumptions about the power and the functions of music, and now we’re just happy for it to just be the soundtrack for whatever else we’re doing, or escapism.” Matthew Herbert
Matthew’s vast body of work includes critically acclaimed albums such as Bodily Functions and One Pig, an Ivor Novello-nominated film score Life in a Day, as well as music for Broadway, TV, games and radio. In 2013 his debut play, as writer and director, The Hush opened at the National Theatre and the following year his opera, The Crackle, opened at the Royal Opera House.
Time and Date: Wednesday July 3rd 2019 at 7pm – 10pm
