When Beethoven played live, it was more like a rock gig than a classical recital – audience members fainted as music’s ultimate rebel launched into ever more fabulous flights of the imagination. It takes a special kind of virtuoso to recreate that energy today, but few living musicians get closer than Matthew Barley: storyteller, entertainer and cellist extraordinaire. Prepare to be dazzled.
