Interviewing David Pickard, BBC Proms

4th February, 2019

I sat down with David Pickard, Director of the BBC Proms, to discuss themes for this year's season and what it's like to be one of the leading classical music executives in the UK.

At the start of 2019 I arranged for David Pickard to visit music students, academics, and old friends at Oxford, sharing concerns and subtle hints towards what the BBC Proms may sound like in 2019. Appointed the music festival’s director 39 years after he first became a “Prommer” at the age of 16, he has revolutionised how we think of classical music in the modern world...

I wrote a blog reflecting on our conversation, see more here.
