Violinist Thomas Gould with spine-tingling sounds
Violinist Thomas Gould opens up a colourful selection of music from the inside - revealing familiar and unfamiliar works in a new light.
Violinist Thomas Gould brings his many experiences as a soloist, chamber player and orchestral member to his choices today. He thinks about the limitless ways a singer like Renée Fleming can inflect a single note, and enjoys the powerful emotional effect created by Barbra Streisand as she chooses when, and more importantly when not, to use vibrato.
There’s also riotous energy from composers Gyorgy Ligeti and Camille Saint-Saëns, and Thomas reveals his ‘wake up’ moment in Handel’s Messiah (it’s not the Hallelujah chorus).
A series in which each week a musician reveals a selection of music - from the inside.
