An anecdotal history of classical music presented by 19 year-old composer and writer Jack Pepper. This week Jack explores an orchestra who threw firecrackers out of the train they toured on, an ensemble who premiered a new work with a barrel of beer as payment, and the composer who would play multiple games of chess simultaneously, whilst blindfolded. Really. All episodes can be heard on jackpeppermusician.com. Follow Jack on Twitter @jrapepper and use the hashtag #MusicalMinds.
