I've never been a huge fan of classical music, mainly because I never properly understood it or took the time to listen. After seeing James Rhodes perform at Latitude Festival this year, I suddenly realised what I was missing out on. I decided to buy this particular album because I loved his track introductions - they're witty, thought-provoking and usually reveal unexpected information about the composers. This album manages to capture these, as well as his brilliant (in my opinion anyway) playing. I love his renditions of Chopin and Schumann - they manage to calm me and make me so happy listening to them.
