Voting for Settling The Score closed in October and as we rallied for the final few votes we all cast our minds to think about what it is that forms our musical taste.
We created a mix 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.
