Such a joy

Really love this podcast - great format - wish Clemmie’s nuggets of insight into the chosen music were even longer - has so inspired me to create my own classical playlists

Brilliant, Touching, Smart

Just when I thought the classical music podcasts have run out of inspiration I come across yours, which is a pure gift to the soul.
