Soho Classical meets Nonclassical

Get to know the Executive Director of this brilliant label here: Eleanor Ward speaks to Soho Classical!

When did you start DJing and why?
I’ve always been interested in creating mixtapes, playlists and DJing at friends’ parties. But I didn’t get started properly until I started working at Nonclassical 3 years ago.

What is your favourite piece of music for a nonclassical DJ set?
One of the remixes from Cello Multitracks – probably the Marcas Lancaster remix of Jerk Driver.

Describe the music on nonclassical in 3 words.
Eclectic, thought-provoking, cool

Tell us your first memory of London.
Visiting my grandma who lived down here, and going to see the dinosaurs at Crystal Palace

What is one piece of classical music you couldn’t live without?
Gah, that’s too hard to choose! But it would probably be Schubert’s Piano Impromptus.
