Hearing Is Believing

The other day I wrote a piece for The Conversation about the Japanese composer Mamoru Samuragochi, who, it was revealed last week, has been paying a ghost writer to compose his work for nearly two decades. The story gained greater shock value for the fact that Samuragochi had also been exaggerating the deafness that had given him and his works an emotional, Beethoven-referencing backstory. My piece led to an invitation to take part in a discussion for New York radio station WQXR’s podcast ‘Conducting Business’, available here.
