Latest Episodes

Hildegard von Bingen • Opera Age Ratings • Gabriela Montero Piano Concerto

In our December 2019 podcast, we pay tribute to the late soprano Jessye Norman and listen to one of her best recordings. We also discuss the new 'Music for Trees' app created by the Royal Parks in conjunction with the Royal Academy of Music. The app follows the roaming user as they walk around Regent's Park, playing corresponding compositions by RAM students. Plus, we take a look at this year's shortlist for the RPS Awards. We flick through the latest issue of BBC Music Magazine and listen to our superb Recording of the Month. As Hildegard von Bingen is our Composer of the Month, we discuss what it is about her music that has stood the test of time and has made it so adaptable for musicians across all genres. Plus, we explore the new phenomenon of implanting movie-style age ratings on operas. As usual, we all bring along our favourite new recordings from the last month, including Gabriela Montero's new 'Latin' piano concerto and a new disc from the Choir of St John's College, Cambridge.

Critics at the ENO • Shostakovich and football • Marsalis and Benedetti

In our November 2019 podcast, we discuss the news that the English National Opera has stopped offering established critics a second free ticket to opening nights, and instead gives those free tickets to 10 novice bloggers. It's a story which has received a huge amount of debate on Twitter, so we dive in and give our opinions. We also celebrate the appointment of the new BBC National Orchestra of Wales principal conductor, 29-year-old Californian Ryan Bancroft. Plus, we introduce our November issue, in which we talk to the formidable pianist Igor Levit about the challenges of recording all Beethoven's 32 sonatas. To mark St Andrew's Day, we look back on all the great works that have celebrated the rugged Scottish landscape. In light of the release of a new book on Shostakovich and football, we explore how his love of the beautiful game found its way into his music. As usual, we all bring along a recording we've been enjoying this month, including new works by Wynton Marsalis and Stephen Hough.
