Tom Service regularly presents Music Matters, Radio 3′s flagship classical music magazine programme exploring the big ideas driving today’s music world. He writes for The Guardian, BBC Music Magazine, Opera, and Tempo and teaches at Trinity College of Music. His book, Music as Alchemy, explores the magic of the conductor’s silent gestures to inspire orchestras to the heights of musical and expressive possibility and the demigod-like status many maestros inspire. It reveals how the catalysts of place, time, and personal history are alchemised into the indelible magic of life-changing performances.
