    Beethoven's Symphonies

    Beethoven's Symphonies

    Beethoven’s nine symphonies are some of the most well-loved and revered pieces in classical music, and they are regularly performed by the LPO. YolanDa Brown dives into this world with violinist Tania Mazzetti, trumpeter Paul Beniston and clarinettist Tom Watmaugh and finds some revealing insights from the players perspective. Including demonstrations from Paul and Tom, you might find yourself listening to these majestic symphonies that little bit differently after listening to this podcast.

    Making Visions Happen

    Making Visions Happen

    YolanDa Brown talks to Artistic Director Cristina Rocca and President of the LPO and violinist Martin Hoehmann about exactly how a season of concerts is put together. Is it as much a science as an art? How involved are the members of the orchestra? How do venues impact on repertoire choices? And then there’s money… is that a creative constraint and will the marketing team be happy with a concert that might look a little intimidating on paper…?!
