A special celebratory conversation for our podcast listeners this week. Cellist Steven Isserlis turns 60 next week, and as someone with a highly acclaimed catalogue of recordings, not to mention an ever-inquisitive approach to new challenges, he seemed a perfect subject for a indepth conversation with Editor-in-Chief James Jolly. The nature of recording, the music of John Tavener, cellists of the past, gut strings - much fascinating ground is covered.
