The choir's Music Director discusses 'The Tree' - and the recent decision to admit female voices

For this week's Gramophone podcast, Editor Martin Cullingford is joined by Andrew Nethsingha, Director of the Choir of St John's College, Cambridge to discuss their new album on Signum, 'The Tree' - as well as the recent announcement that the choir will soon welcome female voices for the first time in its history. 

This Gramophone Podcast is given in association with Leipzig – the City of Music. From May 11 to 29, 2023 the Gewandhausorchester will host a Mahler Festival in Leipzig, the city that was home to the composer for two decisive years of his life and where he became the musician we know today: a composer of enthralling symphonies. The symphonic canon of Gustav Mahler forms the foundation of the Mahler Festival 2023. Leipzig and the Gewandhausorchester offer a particularly authentic setting for the Festival and a unique opportunity to hear the complete symphonies and other orchestral works interpreted by 10 world class orchestras in Leipzig, the City of Music. Full information at the Mahler Festival's website - and more information about the Mahler Festival Pass below the Podcast.
