Eric Whitacre

Following on from his debut Prom last Wednesday, Eric Whitacre introduces a selection of music that has been of particular inspiration to him. Eric Whitacre, called the 'choral king of cool', is the first composer to have used social media connecting thousands of singers through YouTube across the world to perform his music. In today's programme he chooses a few works that have helped inspire him as a composer, including the string quartet by Ravel which he studied while a student at the Juilliard School of Music, a movement of a piano concerto by Mozart and Prokofiev's Fifth Symphony.
