Three years ago today, the BBC released a podcast of Donald Macleod’s focus on Jonathan as Composer of the Week on BBC Radio 3 back in 2009. Speaking to Jonathan about his compositions, the podcast constitutes the highlights from the five broadcasts which explore Jonathan’s music and influences.
Macleod introduces Jonathan as, “a fastidious craftsman and the works he creates are very much music of integration, often bringing together different worlds: cutting-edge electronics and traditional instruments, past and present, material and ethereal. His is music which conveys a profound sense of the spiritual, of the transcendental.”
