Composers of Colour – Talk by Dr Jonathan James

“There is a danger for a talk of this kind to end up just a glib parade of composers who in the past were seen as curiosities, often cast in the shadow of their white counterparts. Instead we shall start by assessing the current cultural diversity of the classical scene, ask how we got here and consider the long road yet to be travelled.”

Fasten your seat belts, sit back and enjoy this classical music road trip with Dr Jonathan James. These one hour LIVE streamed talks are part of the Arts Active Cardiff Classical Extras programme, and support the Cardiff Classical Series programme at St David’s Hall.

The talks pack both essential information and fascinating tidbits into under an hour, and are delivered with a light touch by Dr Jonathan James from the piano. Whether new and curious to the scene or a concert veteran, there will be plenty there for you to enjoy.

Jonathan has also created a wonderful playlist to expand your listening, with his handpicked playlist.
