The presenter of the critically-acclaimed BBC Radio 3 programme, The Listening Service, takes your ears on a mind-expanding walk through the musical landscape. He’ll celebrate music’s multi-dimensional power in our lives with short ‘chapters’ to find answers to the questions we all have about why and how music – from Toots and the Maytals and J S Bach, Gustav Mahler and Miley Cyrus, to Anna Meredith and Mozart – can work its magic over us. Illustrated with short clips of music, he’ll be drawing on anecdotes and analogies, as well as the latest scientific research, in a spirit of discovery and connection across genres, cultures, and histories.
