Bernard Levin talks to Anthony Burgess
ANTHONY BURGESS spent much of his early life convinced he would become a famous composer. He wrote his first symphony at 16.
Instead, after a period as a school-master, he became a prolific novelist, critic and linguist, a man of letters in every sense.
He has written 42 novels to date, the best-known being A Clockwork Orange, and the most massive his latest, Earthly Powers, which was tipped last year for the Booker Prize, but did not win.
Burgess now finds compensations in literary fame - his symphonies get played.

If the Music Had to Stop ...
Britain's musical reputation is second to none, and depends ultimately on an exceptional tradition of youth orchestras.
The educational ideals which underlie this tradition are exemplified in Leicestershire. Here, for the past 30 years, music and art have been central to school curricula; consequently, children of all backgrounds have had the opportunity to pursue a musical career. The present cuts threaten this unique tradition.
' Many of the things we've achieved and cared about will go under unless we fight.... It's a heritage too valuable to cast aside.'
