Personal Canon.

These are a few of my favourite things, following an idea by David Cole:

These are the pieces that I find myself referencing regularly in my work life, the pieces I wish everyone would read. Big, small, philosophical, practical, and between.

Work in progress. Ordered at whim.



  • Language by Stephen Fry (2008).

  • Lectures on Beethoven’s piano sonatas by Andras Schiff (2006).

    Pick one at random and you’ll find something interesting, but two of my favourites are part 2–3 (Sonata No. 7) and part 6–2 (the Appassionata).
