Welcome to the BBC Music Magazine podcast. Join us once a month for the latest classical music news, the top stories in the new issue of BBC Music Magazine, a guide to the magazine’s cover CD, plus a round-up of our favourite new recordings.

    Drive-in operas • BBC Music Magazine Awards • Music and fashion

    In this month's podcast, we announce the winners of this year's BBC Music Magazine Awards and listen to a track from our Recording of the Year. Plus, we discuss the enduring relationship between two artistic forms: classical music and fashion.


    We also look back on the recent highlights of musicians innovating during the lockdown period while they're not able to work in the usual way. These include mezzo-soprano Jennifer Johnston's new cookbook: Notes from Musicians' Kitchens, and the English National Opera's plans for drive-in opera at Alexandra Palace. We also discuss the handful of orchestras and concert halls that are offering concert tickets to NHS workers following the lockdown.


    As usual, we've each brought along a recording we've been enjoying, including a violin arrangement of Beethoven's Piano Concerto and José Serebrier's Flute Concerto.

    Carbon-neutral orchestras • Beethoven's deafness • Sofia Gubaidulina

    Welcome to the March 2020 edition of the BBC Music Magazine Podcast! This month we discuss the news that the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment will only travel by train (rather than plane) on its upcoming tour, as part of its commitment to becoming carbon neutral. We also look at new research which uncovers the fact that Beethoven may not, in fact, have been completely deaf when his final symphony was premiered. 


    Also this episode, we explore the genius of Polish composer Grażyna Bacewicz and hear one of her stunning string quartets. Another iconic Eastern European composer is also celebrated this month: Sofia Gubaidulina, who is featured in this month’s issue having recently been awarded the prestigious RPS Gold Medal.


    As always, we’ve each brought along our favourite new musical discoveries this month, including chamber works by Lili Boulanger, piano miniatures by Kancheli and new orchestral works by Lithuanian composer Raminta Šerkšnytė.
