On the new Fast and Furioso BBC Radio4 Show, Rainer Hersch talks to The Great Kat guitar virtuoso to find out why we are so fascinated by music at dizzying tempos:
"Born in England, raised in New York, Juilliard graduate the Great Kat is a guitarist on a mission – to play pieces of classical music fast. Very fast. The high-octane guitar shredder is known for her thrash metal interpretations of well-known classical compositions; she can play the first movement of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony in one minute and 14 seconds."
