Insight

As a musician, I appreciate the depth of Bruce Adolphe’s insight and analysis of the music. It’s a course on music theory, I have learned a lot about playing and music from listening. And it is funny! I often burst out laughing in the middle of listening. Can’t wait for the next episode. A must for any “classical”musician, or any one seriously interested in chamber music!

The best

I eagerly await Bruce Adolf’s Inside Chamber Music lectures. I find his analyses fascinating - they include not only a musical perspective but a historical context as well, with the presence of live group to demonstrate what he’s discussing.

The best podcast ever!

Each episode is a real gem. Mr Adolph is an amazing musician and lecturer with a great sense of humor. As a professional composer, I enjoy his composition analysis and the historical background he presents. I hope many more episodes will be added! Congratulations for the work, Mr. Adolphe!
