Debbie Wiseman: The Musical Zodiac
13th September 2016
Over the course of the residency Wiseman has been keeping a video diary of the project, published on classicfm.com, allowing listeners to gain an insight into the processes of composing an orchestral work. Speaking to broadcaster Anne-Marie Minhall, Wiseman said of the project:
‘It has been absolutely brilliant. I have loved every moment and the great thing for me is, because I have been so used to working to a deadline, to a picture, to a story, to a film (that’s been my usual commissions), to actually have the freedom, in a way, of writing just comes to mind has been thrilling.’
