Thomas Hampson: Music is a language

The opera singer Thomas Hampson says we are being bombarded by music which anesthetises us to its quality. Good music has its place and it is not necessarily in an elevator.

He talks to HARDtalk's Sarah Montague about why people should learn more about opera and classical music, and the emotions involved in writing, performing and experiencing music.
