“I wanted to demystify the music itself, and I wanted to humanize the people who created it, because I think we often think about classical composers being these dead, white European guys invariably from Germany and Austria somewhere in the 18th century maybe with a frock coat, maybe with a powdered wig, definitely on some kind of pedestal occupying a lofty, elevated space that has no bearing on real people’s everyday lives. What’s incredibly humbling when you start to get to know these composers is that they’re just human beings like you and me, just trying to survive their lives, to express themselves through this particular art form.”
