In our September 2019 podcast, we bring you news of the London Philharmonic Orchestra's new conductor, the Royal Philharmonic Society's new membership offer, and a choir that hopes to bring the message of environmentalism to its audience. Plus we introduce our September issue, in which Julian Lloyd Webber delves into the world of Elgar's Cello Concerto, one hundred years after its premiere. He's also the soloist on your free cover CD. And, as ever, we bring along the new recordings that we've been enjoying this month.
This episode is presented by editor Oliver Condy, who is joined by editorial assistant Freya Parr and managing editor Rebecca Franks. It was produced by Ben Youatt and Jack Bateman.
