Classical Conversations is a filmed interview series which took place from 2013 – 2016. Consisting of over forty interviews with eminent classical pianists and pedagogues, each interview has been published on my YouTube channel. I curated, filmed and edited this series myself.
I chat informally on camera to each artist asking about their training, musical education and careers. I tend to ask similar questions but the answers are so diverse; it’s fascinating hearing how each artist’s respective musical education has shaped and influenced their careers. I feel very privileged to have interviewed so many wonderful pianists and I would like to thank them all for their time and interest in my series.

‘Melanie Spanswick’s collection of interviews is really quite something, super world class.’
Japanese Concert Pianist, Noriko Ogawa
