“Music in the age of soundbites”

Still Life with Musical Instruments, Pieter Claesz,1623

On the day after my country’s national election – preceded by weeks of dispiriting, spiritless and unedifying national discourse – this address by renowned Australian conductor Simone Young found its way out of my kitchen radio, and into my mood.

Put the kettle on.

Put your feet up, and hear why excellence, the arts, artistic heritage, and creative expression are good for us.

Available from today – 22 August 2010 – for the next four weeks. Be quick!  You’ll be glad you listened.
