TEA WITH NETTY #48: Principal Viola Max Mandel

The first Tea with Netty episode of 2024 features a Viola combo with Principal Violist Max Mandel joining fellow Violist Netty for tea and chats. They dive deep into a range of topics, including quirky ensemble names, a story on a quick costume change, Max's top five conductors, and more!

Max tells his story of coming from Toronto and what inspired him to join the OAE. He also shares a significant pivotal moment when he transitioned to playing the viola, which may surprise some, and other riveting insights into the transformation, vision and practices within the Classical music world that will enlighten you.

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.
