Does classical music need fixing?

In this interview with the BBC’s Newshour, I discuss what classical music could do better when it comes to building audiences and attracting new listeners. Moderated by the BBC’s Tim Franks, the segment was inspired by an earlier interview with pianist James Rhodes. I join Graham Vick of the Birmingham Opera Company in an open-ended conversation addressing a number of topics, from exclusivity in classical music to alternative venues to the social context of concert-going.
