It is impossible to have a favourite composer because music affects one differently according to ones mood or circumstancance. However, having said that, there is one composer I would find difficult to live without and that is Bach. I play something of his  on the piano nearly every morning


My favourite opera this year is Ravel‘s double bill of L’Heure Espagnol and L’Enfant et les Sortileges

Instrument (other than your own!)

The didgeridoo
