Here’s our brand-new podcast dedicated to our new concert series for 2012-2013: Queens, Heroines and Ladykillers, which starts this Sunday at the Royal Festival Hall.
In this episode we speak to a cast of conductors (including Sir Roger Norrington and Marin Alsop), soprano singer Emma Bell talks about her career with the OAE and Annette Isserlis, one of our viola players, talks us through the experience of curating the series.
We also explore the dramatic heroines who have inspired Handel, Purcell, Mozart, Beethoven, Gluck and Berlioz, and explores the characters of “heroines” such as Dido, Leonora, Medea and Iphigenia with expert Gillian Granville Bentley.
Prepare yourself for witches, golden fleeces, Trojan wars and venomous snake bites…
The podcast is also available to listen to on iTunes
