A classical music podcast. Join the National Arts Centre Orchestra's Marjolaine Fournier and one Canada's foremost music journalists, Jean-Jacques van Vlasselaer, as they explore the symphonic form from Haydn to Shostakovich.
Adore this podcast. I feel like I’m just listening in on a fascinating conversation in a cafe near a conservatory more than being lectured from a robotic script. I like the longer format that allow them to just ramble at times, because it always leads to fascinating anecdotes and new insights into the artists and their creations. The only negative is the frequency of new posts! Always look forward to the next.Please never stop!
Wonderful insights into the music and the history of music.I would be interested in hearing another podcast or two along the lines of the introduction, where Marjoloaine speaks about the structure of the music and the various forms used by composers.Very enjoyable and informative podcast by two people who clearly love music and understand its nuances.
