Podcasts

Welcome to SinfoniaCast. Britten Sinfonia’s podcast series brings you opportunities to look behind the scenes at highlights from our recent and forthcoming productions. If there are any artists you’d like to see featured in future, get in touch.

Our pre-concert talks are a perfect accompaniment to the concert experience - an opportunity to get to know composers and soloists a little better, as well as to find out more about the music that they will be performing. We know that not everyone can make it to these, and so we’ve started to record a selection of our talks. Perfect listening if you’ve been to one of our concerts and want to find out more!

If you’ve installed iTunes, you can receive updates every time a new SinfoniaCast is published. Just use the links below to subscribe to our podcasts via iTunes or your favourite RSS reader.
