Classical One To One is a concept created by Philip Hyman, who has loved and been listening to music since childhood. He has spent a lifetime going to concerts and operas, collecting recordings and researching the rich and varied history of music.
Philip has written articles about music for the national press, and has been giving public talks about music since 2005.
In a long and varied career with BBC Radio, including a period as an announcer on Radio 4, Philip spent 30 years working for Radio 3 – the BBC’s specialist music and arts station.
