A classical music podcast WITHOUT music

All talk and no music. A musicologist’s dream but a listener’s nightmare.

Solid

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!

Only wish there were more!

By far the best podcast on iTunes. She asks all the right questions, they cover a lot of good information, and they are charming people! Please Marjolaine, give us more!

Explore the Symphony

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.
