Guitarist Jonny Greenwood chats to Stuart about his passion for contemporary classical music, how he still finds it embarrassing to watch it performed live and plans for Radiohead's ninth album.

Over the last decade Jonny has forged a reputation outside of Radiohead as a passionate supporter of contemporary classical music and unusual instruments such as the Ondes Martinot and the recorder. As composer in residence for the BBC Concert Orchestra he wrote the award-winning piece Popcorn Superhet Reciever. He has also written several soundtracks including Bodysong, Norwegian Wood and There Will Be Blood.
