Publisher's Summary

A celebration of music from the creator of Alan Partridge, The Thick of It and Veep.

All my days, I've felt pressurized by the anonymous Keepers of the Cool who tell us what we should be wearing this year, what digital boxsets we should bunker ourselves in to enjoy, what amazing app is the only one we should be shrieking emotions at our recently acquired friends with. Thankfully, I have the one consolation that if I don't quite fit into all of this, everyone else probably feels the same way.

So, I say defiantly, I get more moved and excited by classical music than by any other musical genre. I believe that it is there for us all, inviting us to reach out and touch it.

In Hear Me Out Armando Iannucci brilliantly conveys the joy of his musical exploration, each discovery suggesting a fresh direction of travel, another piece, another composer, another time.

    "Stop shouting at me! "

    I’m a massive fan of Armando Iannucci’s comedy but found this very preachy.
    Only got about an hour in and felt like I was being told off for not liking classical music. Which is actually pretty ironic as in the introduction he declared that this book was an act of defiance against a society which constantly tells him what he must like.... pot... kettle...

    "Aficionados only enter here."

    Having listened to the first 2 hours without a single snippet of music occurring, and being unable to hear any when skipping through the rest, I was very disappointed as someone who is keep to learn more about classical music. Armando's musings will be much appreciated by those already in the club I'm sure. Those who can nod and smile whist-fully when they agree with an observation he makes, and frown contentiously when they don't. Perhaps this is some attempt by Armando to get a higher ranking in some cultural or societal stratosphere. Otherwise I just can't see the point.
