Picking up on MTV’s cribs, WQXR – New York’s premiere classical music radio station releases entertaining new video series called Q2 Spaces. It gives you an intimate guided tour inside the homes and studios of the composers, singers and instrumentalists behind some of today’s most compelling new music.

From the instruments that clutter the corners, to the artwork on their walls, to the empty spaces in between, Q2 Spaces explores the surprising creative spaces that these artists inhabit. Through interviews and apartment tours, the videos offer a glimpse into the environments that animate inspiration as well as unexpected insights into the daily lives of the composers.

Have you ever wondered what’s in Ben Heppner’s closet? Maybe we could do something like this in Toronto?
