"At the moment there are some very interesting developments are happening inside music in our culture. Three areas have developed which are more developed and available and accessible to us now more so than they were ten years ago. These areas are one, the discovery and publication of wide repertoires of early music. Secondly, electronic music - Keith Emerson leapt naked out of bed in 1970 with his newly acquired wife to demonstrate to me the Moog synthisiser he’d just acquired. Well, nowadays I don’t think anyone would leapt out of bed on such an auspicious occasion as that to demonstrate a synthisiser for me because it’s simply more accepted...and the third area, we’ve become far more aware of so-called ethnic music; African, Indian music...and even European folk music. I take a keen interest in all of these."
