Hear journalist and former editor-in-chief of The Guardian Alan Rusbridger in conversation with Second Home co-founder Rohan Silva.
They’ll be discussing Alan’s book Play It Again: An Amateur Against the Impossible – his journal of a year spent attempting to learn Chopin’s First Ballade.
The task proves difficult not just because of the extreme complexity of the piece, but due to a range of world events that impact on Rusbridger’s practise time.
Play It Again is thus a mixture of political and musical reportage, interweaving meditations on music-making with reflections on the ever-changing newspaper industry.
