A self-trained musician who slept rough on the streets for a decade has been hailed a genius after writing a symphony.
Stuart Sharp, 67, saw a vision of the musical masterpiece in his mind after his baby son Ben died 35 years ago.
He could not read or write music but the tunes were so vivid he was determined to turn the ‘imaginary’ sounds into a symphony in memory of his lost child.
While sleeping outside of the BBC building, he met a jazz musician who offered to help him transcribe the music in his head.
