TEA WITH NETTY #47: Guy and Hugh Cutting

In the latest episode, we bring you a Christmas treat of not just one but two Cuttings in a sibling special with Guy Cutting (tenor) and Hugh Cutting (countertenor). They touch base in Netty’s lair (hotel room) during the Christmas Oratorio tour with Masaaki Suzuki. There are talks of chaotic travelling, funny audience encounters, an unusual request for a Sony Ericsson charger and many more amusing stories.

Captivating brothers Guy and Hugh Cutting, who grew up together and are now touring together share their learnings of the voice, family inspirations and the transition from choral to solo singing. They discuss the significance of training to sing at a young age and there are humorous childhood tales of recreating movies at home, such as their two-person version of Harry Potter and moments of sibling mix-ups that many may find relatable. 

Tea with Netty is the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment’s podcast hosted by viola player Annette Isserlis (Netty). Over a cuppa (or something a little stronger…), Netty chats with a variety of conductors, players and other guests as she ‘spills the tea’ on the side of classical music you don’t normally hear.
