What People Say

Few people ask musicians more pertinent or revealing questions than Frances Wilson in her Meet the Artist series, and so the answers of her interviewees are always interesting

Stephen Hough, pianist

Frances Wilson’s foresight and curiosity, as shown in her Meet the Artist series, makes this blog a valuable resource not only for the varied artists it represents but for the breadth of viewpoint and information is has amassed. It should be celebrated and applauded

Kenneth Hesketh, composer

I much enjoyed taking part in Meet The Artist and have also read others’ contributions with delight. How wonderful to get an insight into so many musical lives and see the huge range of subjectivity that brings our great art to life!

Daniel Tong, pianist
