Classical Chromatics with Clare: Fusion

Clare Martin

FUSION! Clare Martin from Classical Chromatics explores how classical music is combined with other genres in a weird and wonderful world of sound.  How does fusion enhance our listening? Is it still classical? Does it open the world of classical music to new audiences? Artists including Popul Vuh to Laurie Anderson to Steve Reich and even works composed during lockdown from Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith.
