The Art of Change with Stephen Fry - Episode 1

Join writer, actor, comedian and campaigner Stephen Fry in conversation with journalist Chris Gunness for a new four-part podcast series on the Barbican’s podcast, Nothing Concrete, taking Beethoven’s Heiligenstadt Testament to spark conversations on music, art, mental health and the healing power of art. 

In episode one, Stephen reads Ludwig van Beethoven’s Heiligenstadt Testament and the great composer’s inner struggles, musing on the link between genius and mental illness, popular modern images of the Romantic artist, and Beethoven at the forefront of a revolution of the heart.

The Art of Change is a series where we meet artists and performers who are passionate about changing the world.
