day job addendum

Mark Lawson interviews Ian Bostridge on Front Row (@ 19min, after John le Carré) on music, magic, and having something to fall back on if your academic career doesn't quite make it down the slipway.

And here he sings some stuff with Harry Bicket and the English Concert.

And here he writes about Britten's War Requiem.

Previous post concerning his new book is here.


  1. Oh dear. Not a fan of this Winterreise, that clip was strange.

    But the interview itself, fab as usual.

  2. Weeellll, we cut slack for idiosyncracies on the BBC. I believe Mark Lawson was the source of the most remarkable pronunciation of "Schwanengesang" ever invented.
