What Huxley text did you refer to on Exploring Music, Monday, April 23rd, 2012?

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.
