Music Room is an innovative British television music series that presents classical musicians and the pieces they play in a manner normally associated with popular music programming. Filmed in a bare studio with only a scaffold cube for a set, the programme strips away the glamour that often marks classical music as an elitist art form. The series has also been broadcast in Canada (on Knowledge) and across South America (on Film&Arts).[1]

Programme description[edit]

The format is a simple alternation of performance and conversation, in which soloists discuss issues and subjects arising from their selected pieces of music. There is also one item in which a particular piece is treated to basic musical analysis.[2]
