New Classical Tracks

I really enjoy Julie Amacher’s always illuminating New Classical Tracks podcasts. The programs help me explore outside the boundaries of my Vivaldi, Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky comfort zone.

New Classical tracks

I have several podcasts that I listen to regularly, but this is the one I look forward to most.
Julie is really well prepared and familiar with both the music and the artist’s background, leading to a very thorough and entertaining discussion of the selection each week.
I don’t know how see discovers these new releases, but quite a few of them have been added to my library as a result of the program.
I also have downloaded quite a few of my favorite episodes, so I can go back and replay them when traveling, etc.
Keep up the good work Julie!
