A Land Without Music? 

A Land Without Music? 

After our final performance of Malcolm Arnold’s The Dancing Master, journalist, writer and music-lover Simon Heffer makes the case for English music.  Why do we neglect our own musical history? Have we been conditioned to believe that music from the European mainland is simply better?  In what promises to be a lively conversation with Radio 3 presenter Petroc Trelawny, Simon Heffer will reflect on the lives of composers including Arnold, George Lloyd and John Foulds, and recommend to audience members three forgotten works that deserve their attention.
