The Magic of Music - Malcolm Critten, RNS

Malcolm Critten

What does music mean to you?
Music has been my entire life as a performer and listener. I am constantly amazed and excited by the way music communicates such feeling and depth of emotions. 

What is your favourite music memory?
Sitting with my wife listening to Quatuor Mosaïques play Haydn string quartets in the Edinburgh Festival – how romantic is that!

What is your hope for music in the North East in 2021?My hope is that we emerge from this crisis a stronger and more focused force, able to show the world what a wonderful musically vibrant place the North East is. 

What is your favourite Christmas song or carol?
Nat King Cole singing The Christmas Song. Just listen to those sumptuous soaring string parts!
