Settling the Score

Settling the Score Live 2014

Lend Me Your Ears

Wallace Chapman in studioVoting for Settling The Score closes this Friday and as we rally for the final few votes we’re all casting our minds to think about what forms our musical taste.

We created a “mixed tape” for the host of this year’s live concert, Wallace Chapman, featuring a slice of music from various eras in Western classical music, from the Renaissance to today.

Wallace shares his thoughts on the selection with Clarissa Dunn.
