Follow Dalia Stasevska's mixtape project with a new podcast as each new track is released

In our 100-year history, Gramophone has always celebrated innovators, be they people or organisations, who have challenged the norm and tried something different. 

Dalia Stasevska, joined by the BBC Symphony Orchestra of which she’s Principal Guest Conductor, has recorded ten tracks by ten modern composers which will be released, one at a time, by Platoon over the coming months, resulting in a playlist, ‘Dalia’s Mixtape’.

We’re delighted to engage with this project: Gramophone’s April front cover features Dalia, and inside she talks to Kate Molleson about her mixtape project.

Every track will be accompanied by a podcast hosted by Gramophone contributor Andrew Mellor, on which he’s joined by Dalia and the composer of the work in question. It’s going to be an exciting journey featuring some hugely impressive and distinctive composers in the months ahead...


Episode 1: Anna Meredith's ‘Nautilus’

In this first episode, hosted by Gramophone’s Andrew Mellor, Dalia’s guest is the Scottish composer and performer Anna Meredith whose work, Nautilus, originally conceived for electronics, is presented in a new acoustic guise. She, Andrew and Dalia discuss the work’s origins and its transformation into a vibrant new work for a traditional symphony orchestra. 

The recording of Anna Meredith's Nautilus by Dalia Stasevska and the BBC Symphony Orchestra is out now. Explore the streaming options here: Nautilus


Episode 2: Andrea Tarrodi's ‘Wildwood’

Andrew Mellor explores Andrea Tarrodi's Wildwood with Dalia Stasevska and the composer herself, who joins the podcast from her kitchen in Stockholm.

The recording of Andrea Tarrodi's Wildwood by Dalia Stasevska and the BBC Symphony Orchestra is out now. Explore the streaming options here: Wildwood
