The strangest detective story in the history of music - inspired by a true incident.
On November 8 we perform Schumann’s Violin Concerto with violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja. In this podcast, novelist and classical music writer Jessica Duchen talks about her novel, Ghost Variations, which tells the bizarre story of how the violin concerto was rediscovered after being left unknown and unheard for over 80 years.
In a Russian themed podcast, Conductor Vladimir Jurowski describes hearing Tchaikovsky's music as a child, and explains the impact the music has had on later generations of composers. Then, in an interview with BBC Radio 3's Andrew McGregor, he discusses growing up in Russia, his memories, training, and influences.
The orchestra is at Glyndebourne. Conductor Vladimir Jurowski and BBC Radio 3's Andrew McGregor discuss the benefits of playing in the pit, how the great conductors often come from the opera, and the excitement of playing in the Royal Albert Hall at the first symphonic performance after the run at the festival.
Anoushka Shankar and David Murphy talk about the completion and staging of the final work of sitar legend Ravi Shankar, Sukanya.
Season 9 of the LPO podcast arrives this month, promising more recordings of pre-concert talks and interviews with our conductors and artists each month.
