Classical music on the silver screen, from ET to Shostakovich
Thanks for writing. The Huxley book is Point Counter Point, which dates from 1928, when the notion of listening to a Beethoven Quartet at home, when it never had been possible, is mind-blowing. I listened to that this morning too, and haven’t been able to get the Heilige Dankgesang out of my head all day. It was lovely putting that show together and I hope you have a chance to check out the Huxley novel. I believe it was made into a BBC TV piece some years ago, but just grab the book from the library and put it on your mental turntable. Glad you’ve been enjoying the show.
