 Presto Music Classical Podcast, Episode 4: Outside the Box with Tom McKinney

This week I am delighted to be joined by classical guitarist, broadcaster and new music curator Tom McKinney for a wide-ranging conversation about contemporary music. As well as discussing some recent new releases our conversation touches upon Tom's experiences with performances in unconventional venues and the delicate art of commissioning new works.
