It might just be an easy way to fill time.
It might also be that the producer is simply following the style of much "accessible" classical music presentation, exemplified by the various recent "documentary" series and specials I've seen that are simply puff-pieces produced by the record companies.
Presumably this approach works in commercial terms. Someone is buying all those Andre Rieu/Il Divo/Sarah Brightman records. And every year, new virtuosos are dressed like dolly birds on the covers of their debut records, even if the contents show some seriousness.
There's money in fluff, and that's why fluff is respected and given prominence.
