Have you ever been carried away by a piece of classical music? The sad song of a single violin might make us cry, but the idea of finding out more about classical music can often be intimidating. In this funny, evocative, personal book, Gareth takes us on a journey of musical discovery that explains and entertains in equal measure.
In this two-parter of BookD, we talk to Gareth Malone about his new book entitled appropriately Music for the People. More inappropriately, no matter how many people say "your hair rocks" or alternatively and rather, cutting to the chase screaming, "MARRY ME, I'LL LEAVE MY HUSBAND!!!" or even "Oooh look Doreen, it's that lovely choir boy off the telly", Gareth has audiences of all ages falling in love with his passion, enthusiasm, and has managed to ease us all into the genre that is classical music.
