Timmy Fisher and Sam Poppleton present classical music news, reviews, anecdotes and analyses. Is this the best classical music podcast produced in a Brixton bedroom? We think so.
Inside Fingal’s Cave
In today’s episode: Mendelssohn’s concert overture ‘The Hebrides’ goes under the microscope, Tim unwraps the musical history of the Olympic Games and Sam chats to Andrew Moore, Head of Music at the Edinburgh International Festival.
Laura Bowler and Purcell's Penglins
Tim chats to composer Laura Bowler about her latest piece, Houses Slide, while Sam re-writes the libretto for Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas.
Wham, Flam, Thank You Joby
This week Tim quizzes the people's percussionist, Joby Burgess, on flam rudiments, Sam presents a medium-sized Fleabag slam – and they don't quite hear the first piece of classical music sold on the blockchain.
Miloš, Moon, Forest
Guitar guru Miloš invents a new game with Sam as they chat about his latest album, The Moon & the Forest. Meanwhile BBC Young Musician inspires some analysis of Ruth Gipps’s underperformed Horn Concerto. PLUS all the usual shenanigans, jingles and Star Trek references. Fascinating.
Line of Dudley
Mother of God! The boys are back from their Easter break, unboxing all things film music with Oscar winner and reluctant Top of the Pops performer Anne Dudley. PLUS, they interrogate mid-20th-century British composer Geoffrey Bush on the 101st anniversary of his birth.
(Julian) Bliss Congeniality
In their latest set of shenanigans, the boys bend time with Johannes Brahms and talk to one of the world’s leading clarinettists – and No. 1 Jamiroquai fan – Julian Bliss. Buckle up for a wild ride.
