Show Info:

We love stories, and we love music. We're also keenly aware that classical music has a well-deserved reputation for being boring and unapproachable. Is it possible that sharing the true, unbelievable stories behind some of the world's most famous classical works (and non-classical, down the road), will be the first step towards repairing that reputation?

We want them to be the most interesting people out there. And we want to inspire a renewed interest in classical music.Read more »
