Show Notes

Welcome to a new season of Upbeats podcasts, with light-hearted conversations every month about orchestral pieces featured in the St David's Hall programme. This month Jon and Haz talk Sibelius: his 'large, well-shaped sound-receiver' ears, why certain passages make string players' backs ache, 'tapeworm' melodies and how his magnificent second symphony represents a struggle between life and death.
