Show Notes

This episode of Harmonious World features a conversation with banjo virtuoso John Bullard, in which we discuss his 24 Preludes for Solo Banjo by Adam Larrabee.

The Preludes were commissioned by John and each one has a very different character. In our conversation, we discuss the order, which runs musically through Volume 1 and we have to wait for it to come full circle at the end of Volume 2, when that is released. In this work, John is aiming to expand the banjo's classical reach.

Thanks to John for allowing me to use clips from 24 Preludes for Solo Banjo alongside our conversation.

Don't forget the Quincy Jones quote that sums up why I do this: "Imagine what a harmonious world it would be if every single person, both young and old, shared a little of what he is good at doing."
