Each and every week, in Gramophone's podcasts, we interview one of today’s most fascinating and inspiring classical musicians about a brand-new new recording – and current circumstances are not stopping us! So while we may not be currently able to share an actual studio, we're still very much sharing a passion for exploring, understanding and enjoying some of the finest music, and for getting to the heart of what makes performing it so personal and so powerful.
Whether it's the pianist Stephen Hough on late Brahms, soprano and conductor Barbara Hannigan on the creative vision behind her latest album, or conductor Masaaki Suzuki on the profound impact of Bach's St Matthew Passion, the most insightful and engaging artists talk to Gramophone’s Editor-in-Chief James Jolly or Editor Martin Cullingford about what the music means to them. Every podcast features excerpts from the albums under discussion – and all listeners are eligible for a special discount on all subscription packages to Gramophone too.
So for free access to 233 episodes - and counting - stretching back more than a decade, featuring conversations with figures as diverse as violinists Viktoria Mullova, Ida Haendel and Nikolaj Znaider, singers Dame Janet Baker, Dame Emma Kirkby and Sir Thomas Allen, or conductors Daniel Barenboim, Riccardo Chailly and Sir Stephen Cleobury, visit the dedicated section of Gramophone's website – gramophone.co.uk/podcast – or our page at iTunes, where you can subscribe for free to all future episodes: Gramophone at iTunes.
