Classical Music Magazine

But why should a musician like Classical Kicks presenter Lizzie Ball, violinist and singer, feel compelled to join the rebellion and take classical music to a new territory?

‘When we’re performing, we’re doing it in order to connect with people’s emotions’ she says. ‘That’s not always as clear in the concert hall as it should be. We have to fight for that’

In the intimate setting of a small club room, people are relaxed, rather than intimidated by their surroundings. If the daunting pin-drop silence of a classical auditorium is lacking, the audience at Classical Kicks still listens with the respectful and focused hush of a jazz club.
