This episode of Harmonious World features pianist Matthew Whitaker, who is set to perform at his alma mater - The Filomen M D'Agostino Greenberg (FMDG) Music School. This is his way of giving back to a unique organisation which has helped him so much along his journey as a pianist.
Matthew's album Connections was conceived during the pandemic and it bears witness to a difficult time in all our lives, and to the people who have always helped him through. It's all about the connections we make.
Thanks to Matthew for allowing me to play extracts from Connections alongside our conversation, and if you're in Manhattan on 17 October, please do get yourself a ticket to the FMDG concert.

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."
