The Open Ears Project

6 November 2019

I'm really enjoying listening to the Open Ears Project – a daily bite-sized podcast of classical music recommendations from WNYC Studios in New York. There are 30 episodes available to download. In each a different person talks about a particular piece of classical music that means something special to them. The guests include famous musicians, writers and actors alongside a firefighter and a yoga teacher. Each podcast consists of just a couple of minutes of the guest talking about the music, followed by a full uninterrupted recording of the relevant piece. It’s nice to be introduced to some unfamiliar music but also to reflect on the role music plays in our lives. You could binge-listen to the entire series but  I am enjoying listening to one-a-day: each episode is really short but it's a great way to start the day.
