Podcasts

Each month during the season the London Philharmonic Orchestra releases a new edition of its audio podcast. We bring you interviews with conductors and soloists, pre-concert talks recorded at Royal Festival Hall and previews of our latest CD releases on the LPO Label.

Most of our old podcasts are still available via itunes, and we've included a selection of our favourites below.
