Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood wants 'classical gigs'

Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood says classical music concerts are "too proper" and "offputting". He believes classical concerts should be more like gigs with the orchestra taking requests.

Jonny's new project with the London Contemporary Orchestra and Boiler Room TV aims to make classical music more accessible to young people.

Jonny said: "We do concerts that are a little more relaxed. People stand at the bar, we set up on stage and play whatever music we are particularly enjoying at that moment."
