You could identify Jim’s taste. It was pretty conventional and… Ravel and perhaps Benjamin Britten’s earlier works, easier works, were about as far as he would go in terms of departing from the canon that starts with Bach. But there was a hideous part of this which, after about 18 months I managed to discontinue, which was that Jim made the University buy two, for their time, quite good cassette recorders and I was supposed to record each evening’s music and post the tape to Edinburgh which was of course an idea of him being able to be in touch. It had a slightly creepy element to it, of Jim being there in spirit if not in flesh but far, far more of a problem for me was that various of the musicians had copyright ab-dabs when hearing about it and although the understanding was that when booking them, Jim would clear this, perhaps he didn’t always remember to or perhaps they didn’t notice what they were saying yes to.
