David Mitchell is an Australian amateur music enthusiast.
He fell in love with classical music and opera in his early twenties and made good use of the under-thirty rates for concert and opera subscriptions.
Every year at Christmas to escape the Australian heat, he makes a pilgrimage to the great opera houses of Germany.
Unfortunately, he has a large compact disc collection gathering dust as he moves into the world of music streaming.
