    Upbeats: Episode 11

    Upbeats: Episode 11

    Welcome to a new season of Upbeats podcasts, with light-hearted conversations every month about orchestral pieces featured in the St David's Hall programme. This month Jon and Haz talk Sibelius: his 'large, well-shaped sound-receiver' ears, why certain passages make string players' backs ache, 'tapeworm' melodies and how his magnificent second symphony represents a struggle between life and death.

    Upbeats: Episode 7 (Can music be humorous?)

    Can Music be Humorous?

    Can music make you laugh? JJ and Haz explore ways in which it can, including parodies, false endings, slapstick and mishaps. Strauss' Til Eulenspiegel's Merry Pranks is mined for laughs too.

    Upbeats: Episode 6 (All things Welsh)

    All things Welsh and Beautiful
    Recorded just prior to St David's Day, Haz and JJ enjoy a heartening range of Welsh musical traditions, from Bryn Terfel hitting the high notes to delicate harps and ballads of forbidden love. Calan and Cool Cymru rub shoulders with Grace Williams and Mathias, then there's a survey of one of the ever-popular Sir Karl Jenkins. Hiraeth abounds throughout.
