Devils & Paganini
As part of the BBCPromsExtra Series, New Generation Thinkers are involved in various programs that blend discussion and interest together on a vast and enthralling range of topics.
The composer & performer Paganini is alleged to have sold their soul to the Devil, thus becoming a musical prodigy. Dr Christopher Harding, New Generation Thinker from the University of Edinburgh chairs the discussion, exploring also the Devil in Christian and Islamic Cultures. To aid the debate, he is joined by Reverend Richard Coles and Poet Imtiaz Dharker.
