Description

Podcast about the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, an orchestra that trail-blazed the idea of players from many countries dropping their normal commitments and travelling to perform together with the world's greatest conductors and soloists. Through our interviews, we will explore the stories of the people who formed, built and run the orchestra as well as those who perform in and with it. We'll introduce new recordings and talk about the music with the people who know it best – those who bring it off the page and into our heads.
