Episode Summary

Jonny Byers
We like the idea of taking a musician/artist out of their habitual context and putting them in a foreign one - we reckon it gives new life to the performance and makes it more interesting to watch. Nowhere is this more marked than in this session  where we invited Jonny Byers to come and play in the back of our cab. Jonny's quartet is one of the best in the world  they've played everywhere to everyone, and won the most prestigious of prestigious awards. But Jonny's never had his work cut out for him as much, so he said, as he did here. Perching on the edge of the back seat of a moving cab and clamping the Baroque cello between his legs whilst playing Johann Sebastian were not ideal conditions for balance and concentration. But he did it  and it's beautiful.moreless
